Photo: Cian ReinhardtTHERE is a venue dedicated to the performance arts in the heart of the town, Glórach Theatre and its interesting spin is that it is run entirely by volunteers.Its long serving PRO Lorcan Curtin, is also a career farmer and horticulturalist, as well as teaching horticulture for Adult Education classes under the Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board (LCETB) at the former vocational school.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Busy as he is, he finds time for some creative writing on the side.His play ‘Camden Sky’ was staged in Abbeyfeale, led by two or three principals and an ensemble of auxiliary parts. “I had a fascination with Irish emigrants who went to England”; London made a great impression on him.Lorcan’s involvement with Glórach Theatre began 13 years back when he had apart in a play“Glórach is run by a board of directors and you have the general positions, chair (Seán Nelligan), treasurer, secretary. We hold weekly bingo here and you’d never think it but I am the number checker there and I really enjoy it.”.“There’s a good amount of money given out, but we always stress the health benefit of the game to people. The mental health benefit. That’s what we tell them.”Attendance is “pushing north of up to 130″ in the night and last week alone, a top jackpot sheet of rollovers totalled €500 in prize money for the lucky varmint who called ‘check!’“Concerts are one of our main things and on Friday July 5, we had soprano Regina Nathan and guest soprano Susan Browne from Browne with Michael Pugh on piano.”Lorcan credits two new volunteers on the board, Tom Madigan and Linda Hennessey organised the last two concerts for teh community.

We do apply for a degree of infrastructural grants and because of a small grant from Limerick Arts Office, we held a memorial to Liam Flynn, a local woodturner.” Print

Wisconsin (10-12, 3-6 Big Ten) lost 76-61 to No. 6 Michigan State (19-3, 7-2 Big Ten) Friday night in East Lansing.In what at first looked to be a blowout with the score 37-21 at halftime, Wisconsin battled back to bring the team within six points midway through the second half.Despite the loss, this game was one of the more promising performances the Badgers have had all season. Happ and Iverson, neither of whom have been great this year from the line, went a combined 14-16 on free throws. This, paired with winning the turnover battle — albeit not too impressively at 13-11 — gave the Badgers a real shot to compete in this game.Men’s basketball: Badgers to face toughest game this season against MSU SpartansThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team is gearing up for a pivotal matchup against the Michigan State Spartans, looking Read…Unfortunately, Michigan State’s shots were falling relatively consistently whereas Wisconsin had difficulties with jumpers throughout the game. The Spartans shot 50 percent from the field and 42.1 percent from three, while the Badgers only hit 36.2 percent and 20.8 percent respectively.This game was a positive sign of the Badgers going back to the fundamentals. Limiting turnovers and hitting free throws were staples in the Bo Ryan and Greg Gard teams. But this game also showed weaknesses in the Badgers defense and shot efficiency that have not been typical of past Wisconsin lineups.The player who wasn’t on the court — D’Mitrik Trice — had the biggest impact on this game. With Trice’s return date still up in the air, the team’s lack of depth at the guard position is showing as prominently as ever.Badger basketball suffers minor setback during mid-seasonHistorically, University of Wisconsin men’s basketball’s greatest strength has been the program’s ability to recruit and develop dependable four-year players. Read…Though he has struggled in the past, Davison was able to limit his mistakes in this game with only two turnovers to his four assists. However, the increase in his passing efficiency came with a decrease in his shooting efficiency as Davison went just 3-12 on the day and 0-6 from beyond the arc. When the backcourt goes cold shooting, the Badgers’ options are limited to Brevin Pritzl, the only other true guard on the team.Time will tell if this performance is the start of a late-season renaissance or merely a one-off outing.
