Fashions fade, Junk is eternal!

It’s that time of the year again when artistic secondary school pupils from across Ireland get their hands on industrial, electrical, commercial and domestic waste products in the hope of being crowned the 2014 Junk Kouture champion. This year’s competition, proudly supported by Bank of Ireland and the European Recycling Platform (ERP), has challenged students to create extravagant but wearable couture designs to compete in spectacular catwalk finals across the country including the Western regional final in the Royal Theatre Castlebar on Wednesday 12th March at 7pm.

Created in 2010 by entrepreneurs Elizabeth Curran and Troy Armour from Co. Donegal, the Junk Kouture competition has seen thousands of teenagers’ work submitted over the past three years, with some awe-inspiring pieces gracing the competition’s regional and national catwalks. Last year the Grand Final was attended by over 2000 spectators in the Bord Gais Energy Theatre which saw Limerick team ‘Ultra Violet Wash’ walk away with the top prize of €2,500 for their school, €1000 worth of IT equipment, €500 cash and a trip to the Cannes Film Festival.

These extravagant catwalk show  in the Royal theatre promises to be unforgettable experience, for the audience let alone the contestants, if last year’s competition is anything to go by – audience members dancing in the aisles, fog horns sounding for support and audience sing-alongs to classic hits to name a few of the highlights!

 

Bank of Ireland Youth Marketing Manager Conor Mc Glynn commented “We are always looking at ways of supporting secondary school initiatives. For the second year running, we are delighted to be supporting Junk Kouture in such a creative competition that gives us an opportunity to invest in the students amazing talent and their promising future in the fashion world. With our large customer base among the student population the partnership is an excellent fit and provides a meaningful platform for us to engage with our young customers.   We would like to wish all the participants the very best of luck this year and look forward to seeing the creative and amazing entries at the regional finals.”

Martin Tobin, ERP managing director, said: “We are getting to the exciting stage of this competition again. At ERP, we have been consistently impressed by the fun, fashionable and creative way students convey the reuse/recycle/refashion message behind Junk Kouture. We would like to wish all the entrants the best of luck and we look forward to seeing their work at the finals.”

Junk Kouture is the leading fashion and art competition for secondary school students across Ireland and has a reputation, among many, as being the most creative. 

Junk Kouture Recycled Fashion Competition 2013 proudly supported by Bank of Ireland and the European Recycling Platform (ERP) is open to all second level students. For further information, please visit junkkouture.com, Facebook or Twitter.

‘HOW GREAT THOU ART’.  
THE SPIRITUAL HITS CONCERT

Featuring Ireland’s Greatest Voice

RED HURLEY

With soprano Sandra Oman and Special Guest Choirs Royal Theatre, Castlebar –
Sunday 3rd November 2013
Tickets €28 incl. booking fee.

The Royal Theatre presents a unique evening of Spiritual, Gospel & Pop hits featuring arguably Ireland’s Greatest Voice Red Hurley with Soprano Sandra Oman and Special Guest Choirs takes place on Sunday 3rd November at the Royal Theatre, Castlebar

Red Hurley has been enjoying significant success in both the UK and USA markets, with his forays into inspirational Gospel Recordings, with luminaries such as Dr. Maya Angelou, America’s Poet Laureate and Pulitzer Prize Winner, Oprah Winfrey and Sir Terry Wogan numbered among the admirers of the Irish-born singer.  

When Sir Terry Wogan played 'How Great Thou Art' on his famous Radio Show, he was amazed with the huge response he received. The Wake up to Wogan Producer Alan Boyd said "I have never received so many emails about any track that we have played!” Sir Terry Wogan declared that Red Hurley has a magnificent, tremendous voice. 

Dr. Maya Angelou, America’s Poet Laureate and Pulitzer Prize Winner calls Red 'Her Son' and has helped introduce him to a whole new audience Stateside.    Red Hurley sang earlier this year at a concert to celebrate Dr. Maya Angelou’s birthday.  He also performed with The Harlem Gospel Choir at the ‘Healing the Race’ concert for the Global movement for inter-Racial Healing which was attended by Dr. Maya Angelou. 


Red Hurley is one of Ireland's elite legendary entertainers, whose singing career has spanned several decades. He is principally known as a solo artist, although he has performed with various bands including (in his early career) some of Ireland's top showbands. Though he straddled the showband era, Red Hurley emerged most strongly in the 1970s as one of the country's first pop stars and sex symbols. In 1976 Hurley represented Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest with the song "When", composed by Brendan Graham. He is one of the most successful solo male singers in Irish show-business history, with a chart and live performance career spanning five decades. He remains one of Ireland's best loved entertainers and, since 2005, has also enjoyed significant success in both the UK and USA markets, with his forays into inspirational Gospel Recordings, with luminaries such as Maya Angelou, Oprah Winfrey and Terry Wogan numbered among the admirers of the Irish-born singer.

Red Hurley now enjoys renewed success both in Ireland and the USA. In 2010 he celebrated 40 years in show business with a sell out tour of Ireland with his special guest, legendary US Singer Rita Coolidge.  The highlight was a sell out show at Dublin's Grand Canal Theatre. A new admirer of Red's is the Pulitzer Prize Winning American author Maya Angelou, who calls Red 'Her Son' and who has helped introduce him to a whole new audience Stateside. A 'greatest hits' compilation 'Red Hurley - The Hits' reached the Irish top ten in 2009 and is still selling steadily. He also starred in a coast to coast TV special for PBS in America in 2006, filmed before a live audience in Dublin's Olympia Theatre. Speaking in September 2010 of the renewed interest in his career, Red said that he was 'delighted and really enjoying his life again'.  Internet concert reviews blog Daniel Lindon Reviews said of Red 'Rarely has an artist had the persistence and self belief to rise above so many career setbacks and emerge once again triumphant, he is without a doubt one of the greatest male singers in the world today and his international success is long overdue'. Red Hurley is once again back on top and it seems he is enjoying every minute. He continues to tour regularly in both the US and Ireland with his most recent 7 date Irish mini tour in 2012 selling out at venues across Ireland.

Royal Theatre, Castlebar, Sunday 3rd November 2013.
€28 incl. booking fee.
Available from the Box Office 094-9023111, and usual Ticketmaster outlets.

A collective of some of Dublin's most legendary musicians under the name "The Group", who are mostly members of the Butler family, set about the task of recreating the two hour live show in honor of the original concert.

"The Last Waltz", was an outstanding rock documentary of the last concert by 'The Band'. Veteran director Martin Scorsese chronicles the most legendary night in rock history.

With a cast and crew of over 30, an 11-piece band and full brass section, 13 amazing special guests, and archive footage on a giant screen, this spectacular live re-enactment of the 'The Last Waltz' is a must for all who love their music.

The Emigrants’ Farewell returns to The Royal Theatre this August after wowing audience in April.

A show which enthralled audiences on both sides of the Atlantic last year, has been confirmed to return to the Royal Theatre, Castlebar on Thursday 15th August.

A ‘born and bred’ County Mayo show, The Emigrants’ Farewell features the best of Irish music, song, dance and culture, and has received rave reviews following performances in Mayo, Manchester, Pittsfield, Berkshire County, and Boston.

“We are very happy to be putting The Emigrants’ Farewell on in Mayo’s county town particularly given the emphasis this year on people visiting the county for The Gathering,” said Sheila Moffatt of Atlantic Rhythm Productions, who have produced and staged the show. She added “The show will feature a cast of over 30 performers”. Ms Moffatt, who runs the multi-decorated Moffatt School of Dancing, created the show last year to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. It is set in the fictional home of Mick and Madge Canavan on the eve of the departure of their four young children for the USA, on board the SMS Titanic. It is a genuine ‘American wake’ with music, song, dance and a cúpla focail. A ‘twist in the tale’ lends a real air of drama to the proceedings. Special guest will be Christina Lynn.

It is a very poignant part of Ireland’s history and this show brings those days to life, while still being joyful and up-lifting.

The show touched “the hearts of all and brought tears to the eyes of many” …. Stephanie Abrams, ‘Travel With Stephanie Abrams Show’, USA 

“superbly performed by an outstanding cast, a must-see." Seamus Mulligan, WROL Radio in Boston.

Tickets are €20 (€16 for groups of 10 or more), €12 (Under 12's) and family ticket €50. Tickets on sale from Ticketmaster online and outlets nationwide, and from the Royal Box Office on 0818 300 000 or 094 9023111.

Katie Taylor comprehensively beat Bulgaria’s Denista Eliseeva at a packed Royal Theatre in Castlebar last night, 48-hours after dispatching Ukrainian Yulia Tsiplakova at Dublin’s Bord Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.

The AIBA World No 1 earned a landslide 25-8 decision over the Bulgarian (who controversially beat her in Bulgaria in 2011) in Mayo. Taylor won the first round 6-2, was 12-3 up after the second and took an 18-5 lead from the third into the fourth and final frame.

Last night, Katie's crew conducted a decibel test. The decibel's reached in the Excel Arena, London last summer for Katie's Olympic fight was a record 113 DECIBELS. Dublin tried to beat it last Friday at Katie's fight in the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, but only managed 107 decibels. Well guess what? Castlebar you EQUALLED that of the noise level in the Excel Arena last year with 113 DECIBELS last night! AMAZING ATMOSPHERE!! 

Also, Current European champion Ray Moylette beat Galway’s Patrick Mongan 19-7 on the Taylor/Eliseeva undercard in a repeat of February’s Irish Elite Championships quarter-final which Moylette won 14-7.

Taylor, meantime, will be aiming for her fifth European Union title in-a-row in Hungary this summer.

She heads out to a training camp in Kazakhstan with the Irish men’s Elite team on April 3rd.

The Emigrants’ Farewell set to wow visitors to County Mayo.

A show which enthralled audiences on both sides of the Atlantic last year, has been confirmed to play the Royal Theatre, Castlebar on Friday April 19th, as part of the build up to the summer shows.

A ‘born and bred’ County Mayo show, The Emigrants’ Farewell features the best of Irish music, song, dance and culture, and has received rave reviews following performances in Mayo, Manchester, Pittsfield, Berkshire County, and Boston.

“We are very happy to be putting The Emigrants’ Farewell on in Mayo’s county town particularly given the emphasis this year on people visiting the county for The Gathering,” said Sheila Moffatt of Atlantic Rhythm Productions, who have produced and staged the show. She added “The show will feature a cast of over 30 performers”. Ms Moffatt, who runs the multi-decorated Moffatt School of Dancing, created the show last year to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. It is set in the fictional home of Mick and Madge Canavan on the eve of the departure of their four young children for the USA, on board the SMS Titanic. It is a genuine ‘American wake’ with music, song, dance and a cúpla focail. A ‘twist in the tale’ lends a real air of drama to the proceedings. Special guest will be Christina Lynn.

It is a very poignant part of Ireland’s history and this show brings those days to life, while still being joyful and up-lifting.

The show touched “the hearts of all and brought tears to the eyes of many” …. Stephanie Abrams, ‘Travel With Stephanie Abrams Show’, USA 

“superbly performed by an outstanding cast, a must-see." Seamus Mulligan, WROL Radio in Boston.

Tickets are €20 (€16 for groups of 10 or more), €12 (Under 12's) and family ticket €50. On sale Friday 15th March from Ticketmaster online and outlets nationwide, and from the Royal Box Office on 0818 300 000 or 094 9023111.

Katie Taylor announces bout with her old rival in Castlebar!

Brian Peters Promotions and Geesala Boxing Club presents: Katie Taylor - on the road to Rio.

Sun 24th March | Doors 5pm | €27.90 & €54.65

 

At a press launch on Monday 25th February at the Royal Theatre, the Bray woman announced that she will face her old rival Denista Eliseeva at the Royal Theatre, Castlebar on March 24th. Katie now sets her focus on the next two steps on the Road to Rio and her ultimate goal of becoming a two time Olympic Champion. Eliseeva remains the last boxer to have secured a victory over Taylor.

 

The two met in Eliseeva’s native Bulgaria back in February of 2011 in a multi nations tournament with Eliseeva awarded a controversial points win. Taylor and her Dad Pete were left baffled by the decision after what appeared to have been a clear cut win for the Irish woman. Taylor has since avenged the defeat and can now look forward to a meeting with Eliseeva on home soil when they clash at the Royal Theatre, Castlebar next month.

 

However Taylor’s Dad Pete insists it won’t be a revenge mission. “I hadn’t even told Katie about the opponents for March because she was just concentrating on last weekend. Whenever people say that she is the last girl to beat Katie I always correct them and say she was the last to get a decision over her because nobody outside of the judges thought that Katie lost that fight. Katie has avenged every defeat she’s ever had and she beat Eliseeva in the European Union championships later that same year but we’re looking forward to boxing her again in Ireland.”

 

From left to right: Gerry Coyle - Geesala Boxing Club, Minister for Tourism and Sport - Michael Ring, Brian Peters - Brian Peters Promotions, Aiden Power - RTÉ, Katie Taylor, Pete Taylor 
 

Following her win in Dublin overnight Katie was in Castlebar on Monday 25th to meet fans and confirm details of next month bouts at the Royal Theatre. The 26-year-old says she’s excited at the prospect of another fight night at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre before heading west on the same weekend. “The reception I got last night was amazing and I’m so grateful for everyone who came out to support me. It felt like the Excel Arena in London all over again and it definitely spurs you on. The crowd can really lift you and you want to put on the best performance you can for them.”

 

Taylor hopes that the series of fights will inspire a whole new generation to follow in her footsteps and after last nights win over Klueners she stayed back to sign autographs and have countless pictures taken with fans. “I’d love to think I’m a good role model for kids,” said Taylor. “At the moment there are a lot of bad role models out there and they are often the ones getting on the front of the papers or magazines so it’s important to be a good role model for all these young kids and to set a good example for them so it’s something I take very seriously.

 

“Any sport is a great for kids, it’s a healthy lifestyle and they learn so much about themselves, its character building and a great way of life for any child.

 

Tickets for Katie Taylor’s upcoming bout at the Royal Theatre, Castlebar are available from 9AM TOMORROW at 094 9023111 or 0818 300 000 www.royaltheatre.ie or www.ticketmaster.ie

Junk Kouture in association with the European Recycling Platform is a national competition for second level students in Ireland and Northern Ireland which challenges teenagers to create high-end wearable fashion from everyday junk that would normally find its way into the bin. Junk Kouture aims to inspire and ignite passion in these teenagers while at the same time subtly educating them about the importance of recycling and reusing waste for the good of the planet.
 

At the western semi-final in The Royal Theatre Castlebar the 80 most promising students from the west will strut their stuff on the catwalk to showcase their creations. They have 90 seconds to impress the judges and if successful the 20 highest scoring outfits progress to the grand final.
 

Our Judges have the unenviable task of choosing who these lucky 20 students will be. This year the judges are a talented bunch – International Supermodel Faye Dinsmore, TV Presenter Darren Kennedy, Environmental Guru Yvonne Holmes and Educator Tracy Fahey. 
 

We are delighted to be bringing the western semi-final of the competition to The Royal Theatre, Castlebar. Sit back and enjoy this thrilling catwalk show showcasing Ireland’s youngest ‘Junk’ designers. Presented by Cheryl and Emile.

It’s unusual to have a festival atmosphere on a Monday night in a west of Ireland town in early February, but that was the case in Castlebar last week, when several large band trucks arrived into town that day and set up outside the Royal Theatre. The job of unloading stage equipment and instruments started early, and by 5pm all was in place for a magical ‘Night With The Stars’, hosted by Midwest Radio. 

And shine brightly the stars did, to a capacity crowd, who cherished each performance – including some surprise guests. Midwest Radio general manager and MC on the night, Tommy Marren, praised the team at the Royal Theatre and stated "the night went very smoothly indeed and we are very lucky to have such a fine theatre in the west of Ireland, hats off to all the staff at the Royal". Said Donnacha Roche, theatre operations manager "we were proud to have hosted 'A Night with the Stars' again - to have so many different acts performing on the one night is very special – certainly it brings it's own challenges in terms of organisation but working with Midwest and the professionalism of each of the acts makes our job much easier”.

The night started with Amanda Ryan, competitor on Glór Tír. A performance followed by Gerry Guthrie and later Robert Mizzell, Crystal Swing and Mike Denver. 

The second half started with Jimmy Buckley, with a surprise appearance from his 14-year old daughter Claudia, when they sang a duet. Jimmy said afterwards “I can’t tell you how proud it makes me, to have her perform on stage”. 

The next surprise was Paul Claffey with his fine singing voice, followed by Conal Gallen, Ireland’s king of comedy, who sang 50 Shades of Grey.

The show continued with Patrick Feeney followed by Derek Ryan and Nathan Carter, and the show finished with John McNicholl.

Mike Denver appears at the Royal Theatre on Saturday 9th of March on his ‘10th Anniversary Concert’ tour, when he’ll be joined by special guests: Crystal Swing, Ray Lynam, Philomena Begley, Brendan Quinn, Gene Stewart, Big Chief and Kevin Prendergast. 

Tickets are avilable from The Royal Theatre Box Office on 094 90 23111 or from Ticketmaster online or outlets nationwide.

Billy Connolly, the greatest stand-up comedian of his generation, 
brings his ‘The Man Live Tour’ to The Royal Theatre, Castlebar on Tuesday 30th April.

Tickets €54.25 & €49.25. ON
 SALE AT 9AM FRIDAY!!



At every good-times gathering of joke-telling friends, invariably there’s always a joke told that belongs to this legend of comedy - a priceless one-liner, or one of his bizarre stories told in a Scottish accent. But no one can do it like ‘The Man Live’: Billy Connolly - stand-up comedian, actor, musician, TV presenter and artist. Billy has lived the life and has laughed at every turn.


After an apprenticeship as a welder in his hometown of Glasgow, he became a professional performer in 1962, forming ‘The Humblebums’ band with Gerry Rafferty, before pursuing a solo career as a comedian. Connolly found cult success through his stand-up and live comedy albums. He has toured worldwide continuously for the last 50 years, performing to an audience of over 10,000,000, was awarded a CBE in 2003, was given the Freedom of the City of Glasgow in 2010 and received the BAFTA in Scotland Outstanding Contribution to Television and Film Award in 2012, and has established himself as both a sought-after character actor and an accomplished voice performer.

Best known for his moving performance as the loyal servant John Brown in the highly acclaimed Mrs Brown, Connolly’s many other film credits include Gulliver's TravelsThe X-FilesGarfield 2 and The Impostors, as well as the acclaimed BBC production The Life and Crimes of Deacon Brodie. His voice is also featured on many animated films including Pocahontas and the Disney Pixar animation Brave. He has recently appeared in Quartet, directed by Dustin Hoffman, as well as J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit.

On television, he featured in Head Of Class, and his own series, Billy. He hosted Billy Connolly's World Tour Of Scotland, a six-part series travel documentary, a theme continued later in his World Tours of New Zealand, Australia and England, Ireland and Wales. More recently he has hosted Journey To The Edge Of The World and Route 66. Connolly has also made various television guest appearances, most notably in the U.S. series House M.D., as well Third Rock From The Sun and Veronica's Closet.


Tickets, 
€54.25 & €49.25, go on sale THIS FRIDAY AT 9AM from Ticketmaster outlets nationwide and online or from the Royal Theatre Box office on 0818 300 000 or 094 9023111.

The AXA Roadsafe roadshow delivered a hard-hitting road safety message to over 1,500 Mayo teenagers this morning at The Royal Theatre.

The AXA Roadsafe Roadshow is aimed at transition and senior year students and is based on an award winning format that graphically depicts how a night out can end in tragedy.
 

With a backdrop of contemporary music, video clips and television advertisements, the tragic sequence of events were unfolded. Presented by Gardaí, ambulance personnel, a fire officer, an Accident & Emergency consultant and a representative from a victim support group, the show culminated in a presentation by a young victim of a road traffic collision.
 

After the show there was a demonstration by the Castlebar Fire Brigade and Castlebar Civil Defence, who teamed up to show the teenagers how they rescue people from a car crash.
