Outdoor short-story event at The Jealous Wall

This Wednesday, December 29, The Jealous Wall at Belvedere House and Gardens will host an outdoor, covid-compliant evening of storytelling, featuring dark short stories from emerging Irish writers.

Performed by Eimear Keating, the show includes short stories by new emerging Irish writers from the midlands, including Brinsley McNamara, Ronán Kenny, Anna Walsh, Aisling Flynn and Sean Finnan.

Music by experimental electronic artist Frog of Earth (aka Mel Keane) will feature throughout the event.

The Jealous Wall is a mock Gothic folly on the shores of Lough Ennell, built to prevent two feuding brothers seeing each other’s houses.

It is also the name of Eimear Keating’s monthly short story podcast on Dublin Digital Radio. This event takes the podcast to the setting of the real Jealous Wall in Mullingar in a live show.

The show starts at 6pm and lasts for approximately two hours.

Tickets available on the door and online through Eventbrite.

This event is funded by Westmeath County Council and the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.

Eimear Keating is from Mullingar. She graduated from the Lir, National Academy of Dramatic Art in 2016, with a BA (hons) of Acting.

She has recently finished an Irish language feature film in association with the Abbey Theatre and ONETWOONEOTWO company, called ‘Éist Liom’.

She produces her own monthly radio show, called ‘The Jealous Wall’ on Dublin Digital Radio, where she recites dark, twisted short stories written by Irish based authors.
