Welcome to our Áras Éanna programme of events for 2016. This year both our drama and visual arts programmes are dominated by young up and coming female playwrights and visual artists. Check out our dramas on such diverse themes as moving statues, a Hawaiian state of mind and man hunting.
June welcomes a group exhibition of four Irish-based women artists with ‘Overlap’ and July sees Áine Ní Chiobháin’s solo exhibition. Our main summer exhibition is a celebration and remembrance of Inishere man Brian Joyce who fought in the GPO in 1916.
Áras Éanna provides the artistic hub for the return of the bi-annual Drop Everything in May and new adventure Dúil Inis Oírr and the Craiceann Bodhráns in June. It’s comedy in July with your favourite priests at the Craggy Island Festival. September sees Inishere Film Festival hosting Richie O’Donnell’s new film ‘Atlantic’.
Musically along the way, we have The Far Flung Trio and traditional music from Sliabh Beagh, Donegal, Kerry and Scotland as well as exciting singer-songwriters Ewan Macintyre, Damien Dempsey and Declan O’Rourke. Enjoy the 2016 programme. Mairéad Ni Ghallchóir
