Clogh Writers

Celebrating Our Culture

This event celebrates our local community in Clogh and Moneenroe through words, dance, music and song, involving collaboration between Clogh Writers and local and visiting creative artists. Culture Night 2019 aims to be a unique experience and will feature performances from local schoolchildren and dancers. The night will include a short 7 minute film The Last Miner depicting the local mining heritage in the Castlecomer area.

Clogh Writers will launch and play their new cd, Echoing Sounds, featuring a selection of their work.

A 7 minute film directed by Luke Brabazon: The Last Miner will also be a screened.

This film records a historic and changing world in the Castlecomer coalmining area. Jim is the last miner, working alone in the tunnels every day. Like many who worked in the mines in the past, mining is more than just a job. It’s part of who Jim is.
