The Glens Centre & Carrick Cineplex – What’s On: Episode 154
It might have a reputation for being a quiet time of the year but it seems nobody has passed on the message to the event organisers of County Leitrim.
Breifne takes a look at the various events taking place across the county over the next seven days. He’ll also be joined by Treasa Nealon of the Glens Centre and Justin Farrell of Carrick Cineplex.
Treasa Nealon shares about what’s happening in Manorhamilton over the coming week with local teen band Grooveline taking to the stage on Friday night with tickets just €5 for teenagers to get in.
Saturday sees The Whistle Blower present ‘Out of Time’ which is a live music, film, dialogue and image filled one hour show featuring the story of Osgur Breathnach and his colleagues who were wrongly convicted for the Sallins Mail Train Robbery in 1978.
Osgur’s brother Cormac is on vocals and whistle while he will be joined by Daire Bracken (Fiddle & Loops) and Martin Tourish (Accordian) on the evening.
Finally Treasa talks about “Irene’s Ghost”, a film which will be shown as part of the First Fortnight Festival, a mental health initiative. This will be screened on Thursday, 16th January @ 7:30pm.
This event will start with a screening of a new film featuring the North Leitrim Men’s Group facilitated by Little John Nee, follows the journey of a returned emigrant who has come back to find his magic tail after it was cut off by the locals.
A comic tale with a hint of pathos, the film is 15 minutes long and has been filmed by the Glen’s own cinematographer Jonas Dellow with technical support from Cormac Carroll.
Justin Farrell joins us to talk about the upcoming new releases at Carrick Cineplex focusing specifically on 1917 and Seberg which open this Friday.
Breifne & Justin also chat about some of the Christmas releases still in the cinema including the latest Star Wars flick, award favourite Little Women, Jumanji & Guy Ritchie’s movie The Gentlemen.
