Ghlúin Nua aims to highlight creative talent of Mullingar youth

The emerging generation of creative talent in Mullingar are aiming to show what they’ve got to the rest of the population at an innovative variety event next Saturday.

Jack Gaudet is organising the “creative youth showcase called Ghlúin Nua (new generation) to show the people of Mullingar the talented youth in this town”.

Working with fellow musician Meghan Bates and Ethan Finnane on the photography side, Jack promises “original live music, a short film screening from a talented local director, a reading of the work of a local poet and an exhibition of the work of two local photographers”.

The other contributors are David Naughton, reading his poetry, Tracey Maher displaying her photography, and Adam Lowry, who will be screening his short film.

The event runs in association with Cúige Studios on Dominick Street on Saturday, April 1.

(It is already sold out, but we thought it well worthwhile to highlight the work of the youthful team involved.)
