Sean Tyrell at Ballina Arts Centre

Sean Tyrrell: Message of Peace Friday 7th September, 8pm

Message of Peace is the deeply moving story of the lesser-known Irish hero John Boyle O’Reilly (1844-1890).
In a riveting stage presentation, the extraordinarily talented singer-bard Seán Tyrrell brings this forgotten visionary-poet to life, weaving a varied tapestry of traditional music, song, words and poetry. John Boyle O’Reilly’s story crosses three continents, jail, persecution and escape. A fascinating journey – and a must see production!

Tickets: €15 / €12. Early booking advised.

Emma O'Grady Ballina Arts Centre Theatre

What Good is Looking Well When You’re Rotten on the Inside? Wednesday 12th September, 8pm

One month before his death, retired civil servant and man of few words Paddy O’Grady had a sudden urge to talk. Using a cassette tape recorder, he recorded hours of absurdist stories and musings on life.
Now, Paddy’s granddaughter examines the fragile personas we present to the world, who we might be behind them and who we could be instead in a show about emotional inheritance and grief for wasted creativity that serves as both a tribute and a warning.
Supported by the Arts Council, Galway City Council, Galway Theatre Festival, Mermaid Arts Centre, Áras Éanna (Inis Oírr) and Laois County Council.

Tickets: €15 / €12. Early booking essential.
