A Christmas Carol is the playful, physical storytelling, stage adaptation of Charles Dickens much loved novella, adapted and devised by award-winning actors Aaron Monaghan & Bryan Burroughs

Devised straight from Dickens classic text, two actors of Ireland’s most-loved performers Bryan Burroughs and Manus Halligan - dressed in snazzy suits - play all the characters at break-neck speed using an array of colourful hats, scarves and an Ikea coat-rack!

The famous cautionary tale tells the story miserly Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by ghosts who take him on a journey through his past, present and future one fateful Christmas Eve.

This production is funny, slightly scary, utterly heart-warming and features a surprise special guest appearing as Tiny Tim...

To Shape and To Form
Date: 18/11/2023 – 20/01/2024
Time: All Day Event
Cost: FREE
All three artists in this exhibition have shaped and formed their own vision and language using organic and natural shapes and images as their starting points. 
Suzanne Carroll’s work in the Cooley mountains and her experimentation with materials, processes and colour - painting, printing, layering, cutting – have resulted in semi abstract compositions in which the tension between the interplay of her source materials and processes are evident.

Emma Ray’s detailed skill-full oil paintings draw attention to and explore with clarity the fore shore that is so familiar to us yet with which we seldom give the time to fully consider. An assiduous keeper of notebooks Gina Petrea’s diverse practice includes working with found building site materials and myriad source material.
