On Wednesday December 14th the Monaghan Arts Network held their Christmas Showcase
in the Garage Theatre. A big crowd turned up to enjoy another great night of talent
and entertainment. All the performers had featured de of the Monthly Showcases, so
they were not new but very welcome on the return visit. They included: Rosanna Myles;
Rambling Jimmy; Marie Fox; Bernie, Norah, Vincent and Sean McKenna assisted by Alex
Watson; Ellen McAteer; Sandra Clarke; Josephine and Angela O'Hagan; Alex Watson;
Nelly Clarke; Patricia Vallelly; Norah McKenna teamed up with Josephine and Angela
O'Hagan; and the Cantemus Chamber Choir with the MC for the night the comedian Lorcan
McGrane. There was also the launch of 'Give Me Breath Lord' video by Dara MacGabhann,
featuring some well known faces and you can see a clip at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=782SdoMTMEo
Needless to say all were terrific and a vast display of talent and varied programme.
Another success for the Network. During the interval they helkd a draw for all who
had signed in to the Monthly Showcases during the year and the winner would receive
Four Golden Tickets for HighKings Concert with an opportunity to meet the group prior
to the show. It was a shock to my system to hear my phone number being called as
the winner but I am looking forward greatly to the show.
