TOMORROW NIGHT, the Town Hall Theatre bar hosts the opening of a fascinating new art exhibition, entitled Claddagh Images - Real & Imagined, by 6 Degrees West, a Galway-based collective whose members are graduates of the GMIT's art and design degree course.
Irish traditional music is one of the great survivors of history. Maybe it was because we are an island, way off on our own in the western Atlantic, and until the latter decades of the last century, out of hearing from the mass cultural movements of popular cinema, radio and TV, especially the modern music from Europe and the US, that something distinctive has survived. As a boy I would only hear traditional music sessions in a few Gaelteacht areas, or from the welcoming Standún family in Spiddal, or at the Féiseanna at An Taibhdhearc, which was more memorable for the day off from school than it was for the music.
Mayo are on the look out for a new senior football manager after the inevitable resigning of joint managers Pat Holmes and Noel Connelly last Friday night. It was a somewhat embarrassing saga in the Mayo GAA family that such an event occurred. By the time Noel and Pat resigned I had simply had enough.

COLUM MCCANN, one of Ireland’s finest writers, will read from his new book, Thirteen Ways Of Looking, at an event tomorrow evening [Friday October 9], organised by Cúirt International Festival of Literature and An Taibhdhearc Theatre.

Now that the dust has settled and Mayo’s 2015 attempt to win back the Sam Maguire cup for the first time since 1951 came to a very disappointing end, I was somewhat amazed at the way the media and general public analysed the situation. You have to be thick skinned to be a manager of a senior inter-county team; I know I will never be. The knives are most certainly out. Everybody bar the team’s kit man has had some level of blame directed towards them.
Entrepreneurs and business people from the west region will gather at GMIT Mayo in Castlebar on Tuesday, 29 September, to participate in the ninth annual Spirit of Entrepreneurship evening hosted by the Innovation Hub (iHub), formerly known as the Innovation in Business Centre (IiBC).
ONE OF the big hits of last year’s Galway International Arts Festival was Star Of The Sea, the superb stage adaptation of Joseph O’Connor’s acclaimed novel jointly produced by Moonfish and An Taibhdhearc. Audiences now have a second chance to see this much-praised show when it returns to An Taibhdearc for a short run prior to embarking on a national tour.
