Roscommon Arts Centre is delighted to present Bernadette by Turner Prize winner Duncan Campbell. One of a trilogy of films, it focuses on female Irish dissident and political activist Bernadette Devlin. In 1969 she became the youngest woman ever elected to the British Parliament and she personified the young radical Catholics of Northern Ireland at the onset of the modern Troubles. Campbell’s film works with archive footage and writings about her in an effort to do justice to her legacy. The exhibition runs until January 13.
In the West of Ireland at the foot of the Ox Mountains, a unique female voice is turning heads and getting extensive airplay on radio stations throughout Ireland. Bernadette Ruddy is the girl with the golden voice. Her voice is a treasure with its rich vocal tones and touching delivery. It was these attributes that caught the attention of the prolific songwriter Pete St John. On hearing Bernadette sing at one of her concerts Pete St John recognised immediately that this was the artist he had patiently waited for to beautifully deliver a very special song.
