Covid 19 Update

On the 6th of October the Irish Government implemented level 3 restrictions across the state. Under level 3 indoor theatre-based events are not permitted. This means that we have to cancel some of the films planned for this season and that our Autumn Season will not begin until 29th of October at the earliest.

A decision on this will be taken and announced here nearer that date. In the meantime we will be contacting all those who have already bought tickets in order to arrange a refund.

There is a new colonial identity in Australia.. proud to be Aboriginal and proud to be Irish.. But what of the history that forged that link? The poet Louis de Paor lived in Australia in the 1980s, and he returns there to explore how the Irish, as a founding people in the story of white Australia, were complicit in the dispossession of Aboriginal people. At the heart of this exploration is the story of the Stolen Generations, mixed race children who were taken away from their families, and an Aboriginal resistance lead by 'Shamrock Aborigines', who saw theirs as a shared struggle against a common oppressor. Weaving social and personal history with poetry, An Dubh ina Gheal reveals the hidden story of the Irish in Australia.
