Guest speaker: Declan Malone speaks about ‘Social Context of a Dingle Past Life.’

Martin Rosswog will be present and give a short introduction to his work.

German photographer Martin Rosswog frequently traveled the Dingle Peninsula and the Inveragh Peninsula from the early 1970s until the early 2000s. During these visits he built a rapport with the locals and a large collection of photographs, recording a way of life in Dingle up to the mid-90s before the economic boom brought new modern changes to the peninsula. Subject matters Martin captured range from Dingle houses, streets, shops and pubs, farmhouse interiors, landscapes and local people and of course the famous Dingle Races.

These photographs taken in Ireland are shown in public for the very first time. They are the part of Rosswog’s European Rural Interiors project.

Danger Money - Dráma le John Mc Manus

Dráma á léamh ag an scríbhneoir John McManus

Award winning playwright John Mc Manus will deliver a performed reading of his play “Danger Money” – “a beautiful ‘close-up’ of rural Irish life”, full of heartache and humour. The story is told by Teddy ‘the Mucker’ Tucker who emigrated to London, it was only ever meant to be a stepping stone for him but somehow he stayed there for over thirty years. Until one day he abruptly abandoned his friends and his job and returned home to North Leitrim. Where we find him with a lot on his mind: Why did he ever come back to Leitrim? why did that Danny fella ever leave Ventry? why does’nt his landlord take a drink? are dead people flying around as birds? should snakes receive the Free Travel Pass? who puts plasterboard on a shower? why is he gathering turf in the bog when when he does’nt have a fireplace?.

Time: Dé Máirt/Tuesday 27 Iúil/Déardaoin/Thursday 29 Iúil 7 p.m., Ticéid €10 – le ceannach ag an ócáid. Tickets €10 – to be purchased at the event
