‘I Am’ the movie

The Happiness Project invites you to a showing of the film ‘I Am’
Tuesday 7 February 2017
Rom the maker of ‘Happy’ the movie, ‘I Am’ is an utterly engaging and entertaining non-fiction film that poses two practical and provocative questions: what’s wrong with our world, and what can we do to make it better?
The film investigates how an individual and race can improve the way we live and walk in the world. The result is a fresh, energetic, and life-affirming film that challenges our preconceptions about human behavior while simultaneously celebrating the indomitable human spirit.
Join the Happiness Project on Tuesday 7 February 2017 at 7:30 in The Courthouse Gallery, Ennistymon.

Coastal Lore – Ballaghaline to Liscannor by Maura O’Loughlin, Jan. 30th – 8pm

The North Clare Historical Society begins its 2017 lecture season on Monday 30th January with a talk entitled Coastal Lore – Ballaghline to Liscannor by Maura O’Loughlin.

At various times during the 1900s, especially 1930s and 1960s folklore collectors from the Irish Folklore Commission came to North Clare and recorded stories of the everyday lives of the coastal community of Doolin and Liscannor.  The stories were told by the local people and this talk will look at and review some of these stories and will illustrate how important the sea and coast was to the economic and social life of this coastal population.

Maura lives in Kilshanny and is a member of North Clare Historical Society for almost twenty years.  She has a keen interest in history and in particular Local History.  Her interest in sea lore stemmed from living within a few miles of the coastal area of Doolin and Liscannor.  Whilst completing a Masters in Local History, her research focussed on reviewing the lore associated with the sea of this coastal community recorded by the collectors from the National Folklore Commission.   She recently contributed an article on this subject to the historical journal The Other Clare.

The talk will be held at The Courthouse, Ennistymon at 8pm.
