It’s five years to the day that President Michael D. Higgins was inaugurated as President of Ireland on 11/11/’11. It was also a day on which Michael Cashman sent me a text in the afternoon to indicate that he had just seen a few of us on the 1pm News being interviewed outside Dublin Castle Gates in the pouring rain (!) by RTÉ’s Ann Marie Smith. Amazingly the piece was repeated on all the News Bulletins throughout that day! And we have our own personal video coverage of the arrival of the President with all the entourage on that historic day….some of which is yet to be shown on LTV2 Millstreet. (S.R.)
Such is the great popularity of this magnificent presentation of John B. Keane’s play “The Chastitute” that these two extra performances are now being added – tonight and tomorrow night.
And we share some more pictures from the magnificent theatrical experience – The smaller images below greatly enlarge when clicked.

We thank Radio Presenter, John Greene for advance information on his Sunday Evening Programme of 13th Nov. 2016. (S.R.). John writes:
“He was known as an enforcer for organised crime gangs in London’s East End. His boss was a major drugs lord, who had taken over the business vacated by the infamous Kray twins.
John Pridmore never left home without his machete, knuckle dusters and can of mace. He had money to burn, fast cars, girls, expensive apartments, any drugs he required, and respect of a kind.
Fast forward to November of this year, and John Pridmore and his fellow lay missioners have just delivered the parish mission in Bishopstown.
This week on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene pays a visit to Dennehy’s Cross church, to hear about a new style of parish mission, completely unlike the hellfire and brimstone ones of old. [read more …] “New Style of Mission on “Where the Road Takes Me” Sunday at 7pm”
