Ireland's Call
Irish Spectrum Radio have reviewed ‘Ireland’s Call,’ brought to you by the producers of ‘Essence of Ireland.’
This rousing show tells the representative story of the estimated 80 million Irish Diaspora through the eyes of Sean Dempsey and his sweetheart Cora McGowen. Sean is an economic migrant and Cora has to take the tough decision as to whether to leave home and country to follow him to make a new life in New York.  The tale is told through a backdrop of the highest calibre Irish dancing and song (‘I’ll Tell Me Ma,’ ‘The Irish Rover,’ The Parting Glass,’ ‘Danny Boy’ and more) and archive footage through the decades from the 1940s until the 1960s. It is a touching story but with some humour brought to us in the form of the narrator, Ged Graham who leads the audience in song and has everyone on their feet joining in with crowd pleasing favourite songs at the end of the evening.  The cast got a well-deserved standing ovation and responded with several encores and were available to meet and greet theatre-goers at the end of a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

An Untilled Field by Dennis Carey
IRISH SPECTRUM RADIO REVIEW

‘An Untilled Field’ is set in the late 1800′s and skilfully weaves accounts of simultaneous lives in the west of Ireland and in London. A common theme is the hardship encountered by those trying to survive in testing times.  As the plots unfold, with the tenacity of the main characters coming alive on the page, the author succeeds in eliciting empathy for those afflicted by ruthlessness and exploitation.  The main protagonists are not one dimensional, whilst the struggles of tenant farmers to hold onto their land is unequal, some are not prepared to accept their fate without a flight back.  The past of some of the characters, such as the villainous land agent, is only hinted at, leaving something to the imagination of the reader. The backdrop of life in the Victorian era for differing classes is well observed.  There is no attempt to over-sentimentalise conditions, yet the serious topic is relieved by some lighter moments – bare knuckle fighter Bernie’s wry sense of humour is an example. This book is clearly well researched and gives an insight into the everyday fortunes of those in rural Ireland and in London.
