“With unprecedented access, the filmmakers reveal the humour and camaraderie of men who come under daily fire, never knowing which of them won’t make it home.” – Winner – Grand Jury Prize of Sundance Film Festival, 2010


It’s a Cultural Thing, or is it?’ featuring Glenroe actor Michael Collins
8pm, Saturday 2 April, Admission: €12

The Play chronicles Michael’s personal journey from living in a barrel-top wagon as a child on the road with his family, to their move to Dublin and the end of the traditional way of life.

It’s a Cultural Thing, or is it? is “Entertaining, enriching and provocative—you could hardly ask for more from a show. These engaging, true tales portray the discrimination and hardship routinely experienced by the Travelling community.
Collins is an effective presence and tells his stories with humour, passion and a total absence of self-pity.” – Dublin Fringe Festival, Irish Times
