As part of the highly anticipated schools programme, Helen O Donoghue, Senior curator with Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA), will give a special presentation, in an informative talk that is suitable for Leaving Certificate Art students. She is the head of Education and Community Programmes at IMMA and was appointed to her current role in 1991.

Tommy Fleming is regarded as one of the finest singers and actors worldwide and is currently enjoying a hugely successful career. After 25 years honing his craft, Tommy is now taking his place at the forefront of popular music across the globe. The mere mention of a Tommy Fleming concert has ‘sold out’ signs being displayed at venues from Dublin to Darwin within the space of minutes.

Tommy turns each song into his own with his own unique and powerful style touching emotions in you that only music can reach. Tommy is famous for his own arrangement of “Danny Boy”, “Isle of Inisfree” and “Hard Times” all songs that you know and love but you have never heard them until you hear Tommy Fleming’s versions. He also covers songs from “You Raise Me Up” to “Bridge over Troubled Waters”, “From a Distance” and “Something Inside So Strong” along with many more contemporary numbers.
While Tommy’s music may be difficult to classify, fans use such words as “deeply emotional, romantic and sincere” to describe the feelings it evokes. One reviewer described his music as falling into a genre of Symphonic Pop that still awaits a name.

Tommy’s unique talent has brought him worldwide recognition with several sell-out tours in Ireland, the UK, the US, Australia and Japan and he is now critically acclaimed to be one of the worlds’ finest singers of his generation.

What a magical #equinox this was with @luxelandscapetheatre at #clifdenartsfestival
Soon this quiet green beach behind me was covered in miracles: music, performers and giant moving fire sculptures along with a crowd of stunned spectators. I love this moment of silence before a show. Time for reflection, intentions, focus - and in this case a #selfie to appreciate @mandyblinco's stunning creation. #gratitude #circuslife #circusgirls #lovemyjob

Special magical show with LUXe on the Equinox and 40th Clifden Arts Festival. This made my soul sing...at high volume!!! All the elements collaborating with us to create something phenomenally beautiful. Thank you @cliodhnaprendergast for the image 🙏🏻#luxelandscapetheatre #clifdenartsfestival #dharmaart #shipoffools
