The superby talented Duhallow based “Loose Connection” Band have just released a truly fantastic song entitled “A Rebel’s Cry” in honour of Cork’s All-Ireland Football Championship Match with Down at Croke Park on Sunday, 19th September 2010. This is a splendidly lively and hugely appropriate song with Seán Moylan as main vocalist. It is performed with mighty enthusiasm by the very popular Band. Hopefully it could very well feature on RTE’s “Up for the Match”. Judge for yourself as you can now view the excellent video and hear the brilliant song. Now available on YouTube on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHszrnhKhtk (Google YouTube Music and search for A Rebel’s Cry by Loose Connection.) “A Rebel’s Cry” is written by Seán Moylan, produced by Neil Moylan at EQUINOX STUDIOS and performed by “Loose Connection”. Members of the Band: Cian Daly, Denis Meade, Neil Moylan, Mick Tobin and Seán Moylan. Having viewed the video and heard the song it’s surely a case of “Up Cork!” … and… “Every Success on 19th September”. (Seán)

Drishane Drama Camp Concert was held on Friday, 30th July 2010. For the past two weeks a wonderful combination of international and local young people took part in the splendidly creative project.
