Film premiere for Ennis, Sex for Sale in Gort and spectacular landsacpes in Ballyvaughan – all in the LIFE Section of tomorrow’s Clare People

The Clare People LIFE section is going to the cinema tomorrow as we build-up to the Ennis premiere of ‘A Nightingale Falling’, a new feature film based on the book of the same name by Kilnaboy writer, PJ Curtis.
The film, which is set in County Clare during the Irish War of Independence, tells the dramatic story of a pair of Protestant sisters who find a wounded English soldier on their doorstep and must choose between turning him in to the IRA or risk becoming targets themselves by harboring the injured man.
In an interview with Andrew Hamilton, PJ speaks candidly about the challenge of seeing his work adapted to stage and the quadruple bypass which prevented him for seeing the film at its world premier at the Galway Film Fleadh.
Also in LIFE we learn that sex is for sale in Gort as we speak with Tulla based artist Julia Rice O’Dea about her latest exhibition which deals with advertising, the exploitation of the female form and modern definitions of beauty.
We also feature a selections of works from Cecelia Condit’s latest exhibition which is currently showing at the Burren College of Art in Ballyvaughan.
