The Magic Horses of Cill Stuithín, Walking Away & Keith O'Rahilly art exhibition

Interesting topics on this weeks show, drawing from both the past and present. We'll be featuring interviews with

-Fr. Pat Moore, who will be talking about his new book, 'The Magic Horses of Cill Stuithín and other Shannonside Stories', a book exploring a rural folk culture that is for the most part, removed from the modern countryside
-Keith O'Rahilly, Abbeyfeale based artist who will have an exhibition opening at Newcastlewest Library on Thursday 7th December, featuring paintings that celebrate the old rural homesteads (another aspect of our rural culture sadly disappearing)
-Playwright Helena Enright, who will be talking about her new play 'Walking Away', which will be performed at Friars Gate Theatre, Kilmallock on December 6th. This play is being held in association with Adapt services, and explores the depressing vista that is domestic violence against women.

Finally, a big shout out to everyone who supported us at the Abbeyfeale Church Gate Collection and at the CarBoot Sale in Newcastlewest last weekend.
