The Last of the Name – Across the Water

Macklin Weekend

Saturday, October 12th


McGrorys Backroom, Culdaff

Tickets: €7.00


McGlinchey’s book ‘The Last of the Name’ will receive a multimedia treatment/ interpretation from this collaboration, with two performances in the North-West during September and October.

In 2007 Finbarr released Across the Water  – an album inspired by The Last of the Name.  He is now re-interpreting those songs in this show with actor Paul Kelly, musicians Seamus Devenny, Campbell Owens and Lorna McLaughlin Henry, artists Marty Kelly, Marie Barrett, and film-maker Paul McCarroll. Margaret Farren, a former member of the McGlinchey summer school, has also been working as part of the production, providing family archival photos, from the era in which McGlinchey lived in Clonmany, which will be part of the show. There will also be contemporary photos from around Inishowen by Des Farren.

Artist Marty Kelly has created a unique series of art work to accompany this show.
