Featuring a stellar local cast, including Seán Óg Ó Duinnín as Sir Henry, we are delighted to announce that this production will be directed by the brilliant Cathal Mac Cabe (RTE).
Based on true events, ‘Sir Henry’ tells the farcical story of the misadventures of Sir Henry Browne Hayes, the notorious Cork based play boy who sought to gain the hand of the young heiress Mary Pike as a sure cure to his financial woes by nefarious means.

A new member of Macroom Toastmasters from Millstreet suggested we make use of the great resource that is Millstreet.ie to get the word out there on what we can offer the public. There is a widespread perception that Toastmaster’s is at best all about windbags droning on for hours, and at worst, it involves all sorts of outdated rituals. Neither are true.
Toastmasters is all about helping people to overcome their fear of public speaking, and to help people with their communication skills generally. Examples of where Macroom Toastmasters have helped out some members in the past include:
- Preparation and performance in job interviews.
- Work presentations.
- Wedding speeches.
- Contribution to groups, such as local meetings. [read more …] “An open invitation from Macroom Toastmasters.”
