Common Grounds Collective is delighted to bring you a night of Irish music & poetry unlike all others, in aid of Cappagh GAA Club. 
Poet and The Player is a pairing of traditional and newly-hewn melodies, prose & poetry which have been written & brought together especially for the night. 
It will feature some of the highest regarded traditional musicians in the country such as Alannah Thornburgh, Jason McGuinness & Navy Cut. They will be joined by some of the incredible poets Common Grounds has stumbed across in the last year including Liam McDonnell, who is heavily involved with Cappagh GAA club, and Tom Branagan who is an active member in the Newtown community. The night will weave two strands of Ireland's rich artistic tradition into a stream of never-before performed works.
Róisín Williams, a local dancer from Newtown will also perform on the night. 

Tickets will be available at the door of Newtown Church and will cost €10 for adults and €5 for under 15's.
