Dublin singer-songwriter Declan O’Rourke comes to Nenagh Arts Centre to perform on Saturday, July 7th.
O’Rourke came to Dublin in his mid-twenties and soon found himself trading songs with the likes of Paddy Casey, Gemma Hayes, Damian Rice as well as other top Irish singer-songwriters.
On its release in Ireland his first album, Since Kyabram, reached double platinum status and garnered Hot Press magazine’s Best Debut Album award.
Today his songs have been covered by many artists including Josh Groban and performed by Paul Weller of The Jam.
After a break of almost three years he returned with a new album in 2011; Mag Pai Zai was recently cited as one of 101 Irish Albums to Hear Before You Die by Tony Clayton-Lea, music editor of the Irish Times.
Tickets for this intimate performance are E20 and are available from the Arts Centre in Banba Square by calling 067 34400 or online on www.nenagharts.com. Doors open at 8pm. Concert at 9pm.
On Saturday, July 14th Nenagh Film Club presents an outdoor screening of the Alfred Hitchcock classic Rear Window.

Confined to his New York apartment he spends his time looking out of the rear window observing the neighbours. He begins to suspect that a man across the courtyard may have murdered his wife. Jeff enlists the help of his high-society fashion-consultant girlfriend Lisa Freemont and his visiting nurse Stella to investigate. This is an outdoors screening in Banba Square which will take place on Saturday, July 14th at 10pm. Admission is free, but patrons are asked to make a small donation.
