As the Clancy Brothers Festival Summer Series reaches the halfway point, the fourth weekend promises a great weekend of fun and entertainment.

On Saturday, the Brewery Lane Theatre opens its doors for the first drama since the pandemic began, beginning its run of lunchtime and evening theatre with Brian Friel’s play, Lovers: Losers.
Directed by Suzanne Shine and acted by Maria Clancy, Neill Bourke, Sandra Power and Esther Byrne, there are two performances on Saturday August 14, 1pm and 7.30pm, and another lunchtime performance on Sunday at 1pm.

Further performances will take place the following weekend, on Friday August 20 at 7.30pm, Saturday August 21 at 1pm, and Sunday August 22 at 1pm.

Featuring some of the best local talent, this promises to be a great afternoon of free music alongside the Ormond Castle and Manor House. People are encouraged to bring a picnic, a rug and camping chairs, and enjoy a relaxed afternoon of music in the park.
