Dancing with the Stars champion, Aidan O’Mahony has found his inner rhythm once more as Kerry’s Culture Night Ambassador.
The Rathmore Garda and GAA star will represent his home county as an ambassador promoting the arts on Friday, September 22nd.
Culture Night takes place right across Ireland on that evening / night between the hours of 5pm and 11pm.
Aidan O’Mahony has become a passionate supporter of the noble art form and believes that dance is a tonic for the brain and the body.
Enjoyable and Powerful
“It’s a hugely enjoyable and powerful way of expressing your creativity,” he said as he urged all ages, and especially the young people of the county, to get out and get involved.
While Kerry County Council Arts Officer, Kate Kennelly advised people to check out the programme and take part in an arts event as there’s huge choice available throughout the county.
Try something different, visit a gallery, theatre, museum or arts centre – is Kate’s message.
“Our arts and cultural venues offer a wonderful mix of free events that are fun-filled and very family friendly,” said Kate – whose responsibility it is to develop the Culture Night offering for Kerry.
Free Events, Tours and Talks
The variety on offer throughout the county ensures there is something for everyone with free events, tours, talks and performances that suit all tastes and ages.
Culture Night is an easy-going, relaxed way of enjoying arts and culture locally.
In Tralee and Killarney, visitors can go from venue to venue, sampling art, music, film, literature and dance…while from Listowel to Kenmare there are multiple events to choose from across all the art forms. Remember on Culture Night on Friday, September 22nd all events are free for the people of the county and visitors to enjoy.
