The must-see show of the year

GARTER Lane deliver the goods again next week with Decadent Theatre’s stunning production of Frank McGuinness’s Some One Who’ll Watch Over Me, which comes to the Theatre this coming March 14 & 15.

An Englishman, an Irishman and an American are locked up together in a cell in the Middle East. As victims of political action, powerless to initiate change, what can they do? How do they live and survive?

Saturday 17 March

St Patrick's Gateway Celebrate Paddy's Day in style with Labyrinth Management & Events' most exciting show of the year, featuring Ireland's biggest soul star Brian Deady for a full band standing show that is not to be missed.

Brian Deady had been something of a well kept secret at home in Ireland until his song Clap Both My Hands became one of the most played Irish songs of 2016 and reached No.1 in the Spotify UK Viral charts. His recent single ‘Get on My Knees’ has also featured in the hit American TV show ‘Lucifer’.

Conjuring up strong gospel influences, at times the Irishman sounds more like he was raised in the Deep South than as one of 10 kids in Cork and his rich, soulful voice comes with a contemporary R&B edge.

Here is an artist you can believe in

If you have any sort of interest in dogs then this event is surely one of the televisual highlights of your year. While there are those who think that the way dogs are displayed and judged is inherently wrong there is still a lot to recommend this series of programmes centered around a celebration of all things canine. While the main event is undoubtedly all of the events leading up to the crowning of the top dog of the year there is also a lot going on outside the main arena that is of interest. There are the agility and flyball sessions where it is clear that the dogs involved absolutely love what they are doing. And then there is the demonstrations of all the ways in which dogs help mankind such as those that can detect cancer and also
