Fáilte Ireland is calling for local communities across Cork to get behind the Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland’s new tourism initiative for 2014. The tourism authority will be holding a series of community meetings along the west coast in February including two in West Cork. The first will be held in the Maritime Hotel in Bantry on Thursday, February 6, followed by a meeting in Inchydoney Island Lodge and Spa, Clonakilty on Monday, February 10. Both meetings will run from 6.30 to 8.30pm.

Encouraging communities to get involved with the initiative, Fiona Monaghan from Fáilte Ireland said, “Over the coming weeks we will be holding a series of community briefings so that you can learn more about the Wild Atlantic Way, share ideas and work together. These events are all about making sure your local area gets the most out of this new initiative. The briefings will be held at a variety of locations along the route so come along, find out more about the project and how you can be part of it.”

The Wild Atlantic Way is a long distance touring route from Donegal to West Cork with a total length of 2,500km showcasing the Atlantic coastline.The objective of the Wild Atlantic Way is to link the destinations and attractions along the route together, with the ultimate aim of creating a variety of experiences and attracting more international visitors to the West Coast.

The Cast of Harold Pinter’s ‘No Man’s Land’ are on their way to the All-Ireland finals, having won 26 awards, including five best of Festivals, at the Amateur Drama League of Ireland annual three act festivals. The play ‘No Man’s Land, by Harold Pinter, the Nobel Prize Winning Author is directed by Jennifer Williams.

One last opportunity to view this multi award winning play at Skibbereen Town Hall, on Saturday 14th of April, before the finals.

Having met by chance in a pub, two aging writers continue a long night of drinking and reminiscing in a stately London home. As the night wears on, their conversation wanders through memories long forgotten or invented. Is their encounter real or a delusion? Are they strangers or do they share a past history? When unexpected guests intrude upon an increasingly surreal evening, the atmosphere quickly changes from friendly to threatening, and the encounter becomes a game of survival.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by emailing schulldramagroup@gmail.com
