An announcement from Tullow Parish Carrickmines:

The 1969 Nobel Literature Prize winner, Samuel Beckett, had a strong connection with Tullow Church. His mother was a faithful member of our Parish Church and the young Samuel used to regularly attend with her Sunday by Sunday. These, and other local experiences, were ultimately woven into many of his later works.

Plans are now well advanced in celebrating this link with Tullow Church and it is proposed to hold a “Beckett Evening” on Saturday 5th March 2016. This event will employ the talents of well-known professional actors as they present ‘tasters’ of Beckett’s novellas and plays and a narrator will demonstrate the links between the Church and locality with the works themselves.

Tickets (which are due to go on sale in January) may be booked through a link on the Parish Website from January: [Read More]
