Scorch at An Táin Arts Centre

The award winning ‘Scorch’ comes to An Táin Arts Centre on Friday 23rd September at 8:00pm

For those who don’t feel like they’re in the right life, online is a place to be yourself.

“Happiness. Aching, constant, consuming- on there it’s more real than real life. I’m honest on there. I’m being honest.”

Out in the real world though, things can be very different. A story of first love through the eyes of a gender-curious teen Scorch examines how the human story often gets lost amidst the headlines.

Inspired by recent court cases Scorch won Best New Play at the 2015 Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards, the Fringe First Award 2016 and has been nominated as Best New Play for the Writer’s Guild of Ireland ZeBBie Awards. *Suitable for 12+

A slight slip in cleanliness in Dundalk. Some of the very good sites included Dundalk Grammar School, Oriel Park and the Recycle Facility on the road to Newry.  The latter is a ‘Drive-In’ facility and was exceptionally well presented and maintained.  A few of the moderately littered sites just missed getting the top litter grade e.g. Dundalk Institute of Technology and Dundalk Train Station – both were very well presented.




Castleblaney Approach Road:  Grade B.  Food related litter was very much in evidence along this route,
