Derek Ryan’s rise to become one of the biggest stars of Irish Country music has been phenomenal. In just over five years few artists have made such an impact on the Irish country scene like the Co. Carlow singer songwriter. Having played to sell out concert audiences around the world with Irish boyband D-Side, the young heartthrob has brought a distinctive fresh sound to Irish country.

LADY GREGORY: A GALWAY LIFE by Phil Mason
In Phil Mason’s “Lady Gregory” Isabella Augusta, Lady Gregory, recalls the great moments of her life, from her position of wealth, her loves and losses to her passion for the history and folklore of Ireland. Working with W. B. Yeats and J. M. Synge she co-founded Dublin’s celebrated Abbey Theatre which opened with her own play “Spreading the news” on December 27th 1904. Folklorist, dramatist and theatre manager, George Bernard Shaw described her as being “the greatest living Irishwoman”

The Harbinger of HussainThe Harbinger of Hussain   1 Oct
(Ridhayatullah Theatre)

PART I is the historical account of Muslim ibn Aqeel, an individual living in 7th Century CE who served as a selfless emissary to deliver a message of peace and unity to lands in Mesopotamia against all odds. The message was written by Imam Hussain, who took a stand against social injustices, discrimination on faith grounds and intolerance when nobody else dared to. His letter invited people of all backgrounds to join him in bringing about unity and interfaith harmony.

PART II focusses on the three sons of Muslim ibn Aqeel who stood for the same virtues as their father in supporting Imam Hussain before meeting a similar fate. Their resolution in dedicating their lives for the cause of good presents young people and children with a resolve to value steadfastness, patience and Godliness in testing times of the present day.
