Frank Carson: A Rebel Without A Pause Written and Performed by Dan Gordon
His quick-fire gags and infectious laugh delighted audiences in variety shows, on telly and in clubs across the land – The Comedians , The Good Old Days, Seaside Special, Royal Variety, Noel’s Houseparty, Tiswas, and many more.
In 1976 alone he did forty-one network TV shows. He was Mayor of Balbriggan (twice), King of Blackpool, Clown Prince of Ireland and Prime Minister of Fun. But there’s more.
In this acclaimed one-man show, written and performed by Dan Gordon, we journey with Frank from his Belfast boyhood – where life was so tough even the arms on the chairs had tattoos – through his adventures in the army, and into the world of showbiz where he entertained Royalty, delighted Pope John Paul II and never forgot where he came from.
A whirlwind comedy drama celebrating the man, the myth and the mouth – it’s a cracker!

19th and 20th century Ulster emigrants in Australia – A talk by David Hume
Using letters, documentary accounts and family histories from the local area, the talk examines the story of Ulstermen and women who emigrated to Australia from the 1850s to the 1920s.
We examine the reasons for emigrating, what the emigrant journey was like, and what awaited the new arrivals down under. Includes illustrations and a study of several individuals and families including the emigration of Marriott Dalway in the 19th century and the Barry family of Magheramorne.
