Gallipoli, the GPO and Flanders
A fascinating World War One memorial event will take place in Kilkenny on November 15th 2018.
Drawing on the personal letters and diaries of both his paternal and maternal granduncles and the diary of a British soldier, composer Michael Holohan has created a moving portrait as he takes you on a music and literary journey.
Gallipoli, The GPO And Flanders features the real life stories and eyewitness accounts of Francis and Thomas Holohan, Seosamh de Brún and Samuel Henry Lomas during the First World War 1914-18 and the Easter Rising in 1916.
The performers are renowned actor Barry McGovern (I'll Go On), unique playwright and actor Donal O’Kelly (Catalpa and the Van), the wonderful RTE Contempo String Quartet, John Walsh (trumpet), John McCrea (percussion) and Michael Holohan (director and percussion).
There will be a performance of Gallipoli, The GPO And Flanders on November 15th 2018 at the Medieval Mile Museum in Kilkenny. The performance starts at 8pm and admission is free.
