Multi award winner Louise is highly regarded both nationally and internationally as one of Ireland’s greatest interpreters of song, this combined with her unique guitar style makes for a magical experience.
This special concert sees Louise return to the theatre stage for this intimate trip back to her folk days when she performed with her brothers as part of the highly acclaimed folk group The Morrisseys. From the mid 70’s through to the late 80’s The Morrisseys enjoyed national and international success.
Louise will take you on a nostalgic journey from those early days with The Morrisseys right up to the present day, singing songs from her vast repertoire. Louise has invited her brother Norman to join her on bass and vocals for these special concerts and together they will share with their audience many memories, stories and songs including her chart topping “The Old Rustic Bridge By The Mill”, her touching tribute to Percy French with the classic “Come Back Paddy Reilly To Ballyjamesduff” and many more favourites, making for a most enjoyable evening.

A Doctors Sword
A Doctor’s Sword (documentary) tells the remarkable story of Aidan MacCarthy, a doctor from Castletownbere West Cork, who, at 28, joined the RAF in London as the 2nd World war began. Soon after he found himself evacuated from Dunkirk and in May 1941 received the George’s Cross for rescuing the crew of a burning RAF plane which had crashed into a bomb dump on landing. He volunteered for service in Asia as Singapore fell to the Japanese, was captured in Java and survived almost 4 years of brutal captivity enduring starvation, malnutrition, forced labour, beatings and torture as a prisoner of war.
Aidan MacCarthy was a POW at the camp attached to the Mitsubishi Steel and Iron works in Nagasaki when the atomic bomb was dropped on the city at 11:02am on August 9th 1945. This was the beginning of the end of his captivity and he later returned home with a Samurai sword which was given to him as a gift by the POW camp commander at the end of the war.
The documentary tells Dr Aidan MacCarthy’s incredible story of resilience and bravery, and his daughter Nicola’s journey to find the family of the Japanese officer who gave their ancestral sword to her father.
