MUSIC: Christy Moore Live From The National Concert Hall
Over the past 15 years it has become something of a holiday tradition to attend a Dublin concert with Christy Moore at Christmas time. Although there is no large gathering this year, you are invited to join a livestream show from the National Concert Hall.

MUSIC: Esposito Quartet
The final instalment of the Castleconnell Concert Series will be brought to you by The Esposito Quartet. The four members of the quartet are: Mia Cooper and Anna Cashell both on Violin, Joachim Roewer, Viola and William Butt on Cello. They will be playing Beethoven Quartet in A minor Op.132 and Quartet in E minor Op.59 No.2. The event will be available online on Tuesday 12th January. A real treat for music lovers and those in need of a mid-week pick-me-up.
THEATRE: The Last Five Years
The Odd Theatre Company will present their production of the award-winning musical The Last Five Years, a show widely regarded as one of the finest musicals of the 21st century, live from the stage of the Riverbank Arts Centre. An emotionally powerful and intimate tale of two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over half a decade, The Last Five Years follows the relationship of Cathy, a struggling actress, and Jamie, a rising novelist. The show’s unconventional structure sees Cathy’s story start at the end of their relationship, working backwards, while Jamie’s is told chronologically, from the beginning of their romance.
