Social history of Slieverue screened as part of Eigse celebrations

A concert will take place in the Rhu Glen tomorrow

There has been celebrations in Slieverue in recent days to mark the launch of the 40th Eigse.

The Eigse was launched last Friday in the Rhu Glenn with an entertaining opening address by Fr Brian Griffin followed by a terrific documentary charting the social history of Slieverue.

The documentary kept the audience enthralled - keep an eye out for the DVD!

There were also a number of lectures held in the John O'Donovan Centre and a concert will take place in the Rhu Glenn tomorrow (Saturday) at 8pm.
