Good news from the Arts Council!

It is very belatedly that I am getting around to this exciting update, what can I say to redeem myself only “I were mad busy doing the art I had no time to talk about it!”

Theatre Artist in Residence at the Town Hall Theatre Galway. 

Thanks to The Arts Council, The Town Hall Theatre Galway and Galway City Arts Office I am installed as the headline suggests and have been busy writing, mentoring and setting up a program of events that I trust will impress and delight and a full schedule will be announced over the coming weeks. As part of the residency I will be presenting a series of “work in progress” performances and it is my intention to have workshops around the process of creating the work while offering mentorship to other writers, storytellers, performers, musicians or theatre makers at the same time. If you have a project that you would like help with please feel free to contact me through this site.

Blue Train to Clifden. Under the Arts Council Theatre Projects Awards I received funding to develop a script “Blue Train to Clifden” with Raymond Keane, Emma Martin and Michael Chang to be produced by Craig O Flaherty. I shall return to this post to tell you in more detail about the artists involved soon. I am delighted with the progress so far as we prepare to take it to another level when we all come together for some intensive work at The Tyrone Gutherie Centre in Annamakerrig,
