A great turn out for a private viewing of “Smalltown ” last night in the Astor Cinema in Listowel. Gerard and Grainne had the showing there in honour of the late Kieran Gleeson who contributed so much to the artistic and entertainment life of North Kerry and West Limerick. “Smalltown ” was produced by Grainne O Sullivan, written and directed by Gerard Barrett and had a relatively new cast but starred the great Pat Shortt who was in attendance last night. He and Gerard took questions afterwards. The response of the audience was deeply felt and warm.
The series begins on Tv3 next Thursday night at 10pm. It will run for the first three Thursday nights of September.
Pat Shortt and Gerard Barrett will be on Saturday night with Miriam, tonight at 9.30pm. It’s the last item on her last program of this season and is worth watching.
