On Friday, February 20, a function was held in the Munster Arms Hotel in Bandon, where 11 young people were honoured, all of whom were nominees in the West Cork Garda Youth Awards (in association with SuperValu) 2014. Whilst they were not chosen as Award winners for the Awards Ceremony itself, An Garda Siochana and SuperValu felt that it was very important to highlight their nomination, and to recognise the excellent work that is being carried out by those nominated.

On the day, Superintendent Liam Horgan of Bandon Garda Station presented the Certificates of Nomination, and Andrew Fallon, (store manager), and Lorraine Kenny of Caulfield’s SuperValu in Bandon represented the Awards sponsor SuperValu. Also present on the evening was Garda James O’ Mahony, Juvenile Liaison Officer, Bandon Garda Station, who initiated these Awards in 1995.

Caulfield’s SuperValu also kindly supplied light refreshments and goodie bags for those present. Garda Damian White, Bandon Garda Station, PRO for the West Cork Garda Youth Awards (in association with SuperValu), thanked all those present for their efforts, and their attendance, and reflected that these Certificates will be a welcome addition to any CV.

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
