ALL are welcome to enjoy the action as Culture Night unfolds in Killarney on Friday, September 22.

There is something for everyone to enjoy, promises Kerry County Council arts officer Kate Kennelly. “It’s a great way of showing your support for our cultural institutions and the many artists we have in Kerry,” said Kate.

Culture Night in Killarney kicks off at 5pm this year with the annual Visual Artists’ Showcase which features an exhibition of art at Government Buildings on New Road. Creative Ireland Kerry has a youth choral open session taking place for young people aged 8 to 18 years from 5pm at Killarney House, which is itself is open for free tours between 6pm and 7pm.

Kerry Film Festival has secured a screening of the first Irish short film to be nominated for an Academy Award. The film is called “Return To Glennascaul” and features Orson Welles. It takes place at Killarney Cinema from 7pm to 7.30pm.

Killarney Cultural Centre will be a hive of activity this year with events running from 5.30pm through to 10.30pm. PURE-Back to Basics kicks off the schedule and is led by DB O’Connor who promises to offer an insight into sean nós singing. It will be followed nicely by a traditional session from Killarney Comhaltas at 7pm. At 9pm St John’s Mill Theatre will present “She Had A Ticket In Mind” which features stories of legendary and contemporary Irish women. Donal Lunny and Andy Irvine will be in concert at Muckross Schoolhouse & Traditional Farms and all tickets for that must be pre-booked. At the same time a Feast of Folk will take place at St Mary’s Church of Ireland and will feature Tim O’Shea and Spraoí Chiarraí.
