The Old Triangle
A celebration for the benefit of the Irish Penal Reform Trust
Sunday, 26th February 2012 at 8pm
Abbey Theatre, Dublin 1
A celebration of music and words for the benefit of the Irish Penal Reform Trust, The Old Triangle seeks to raise awareness of the need for penal reform and the place of prison and prisoners in society. Many of the artists taking part in this celebration have worked in prisons, and we are mindful of the important role the arts and artists have to play in the life of our prisons.
The featured musicians and writers, all of whom are waiving fees for the night, are:
Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill
Karan Casey & Niall Vallely
(Noel Shine, Mary Greene & Ellie Shine)
Jimmy Kelly & friends
The artist Eddie Cahill, introduced by Brian Maguire
The event is hosted by Paula Meehan and Theo Dorgan. IPRT is very grateful for the financial support from Poetry Ireland in this event.
We are all aware that there is a huge debate going on in Ireland right now about what kind of civil society we should be striving for. Artists are as much part of the debate as anyone, and conscious of the need to make this debate as inclusive and wide-ranging as possible.” – Paula Meehan, Patron of IPRT
We very much hope you can join us on the night for what will, we are sure, be a memorable event – and we hope you can bring a friend or two along as well!
