We are delighted to announce the upcoming release of Made in Cork | Play It By Ear: a selection of rehearsed readings from our audio stream programme, Play It by Ear.

Made in Cork: Play It by Ear Rehearsed Readings offers access to the full audio streamed collection of nine rehearsed readings for the month of March, over 11hrs of pure theatre.

The nine rehearsed readings have been chosen for their distinctly Cork flavour, acknowledging and celebrating the wealth of creative talent we are privileged to hold in Cork.

Sean Kelly, Executive Director at The Everyman, “we are delighted that we are in a position to continue to present high-quality audio broadcasts to our loyal audiences. We have also responded to the valuable feedback we received asking if the shows could be made available for a longer period so anyone who missed our autumn/winter series can now experience them, on demand, again. We are particularly proud to highlight so many wonderful Cork artists.”

Made in Cork | Play It By Ear Rehearsed Readings will be available from Monday 1st March to Wed 31st March.

Tickets: €18 to access the full compilation - at any time - for the month of March.

Carol Night donation to Harvest

A donation has been made for this special occasion, Carol Night at the Irish Association of Manitoba, to Harvest Manitoba by Anne Durcan.

This donation is in recognition of the performers who donated their time for Carol Night at the Irish Association of Manitoba, and to those who donated their time to organize the night.

Your support is helping to change lives right here in Manitoba. Thanks to the support of generous donors like you, Harvest Manitoba is able to provide food for more than 62,000 Manitobans each month, of which 43 per cent are children. Did you know, Manitoba has the second highest rate of children using food banks in Canada!

Together we are creating hope for our neighbours.

With amazing donors, Harvest Manitoba is also able to offer free job and life skills training to our food bank clients and volunteers, giving them the tools they need to step up and out of poverty. By helping to prepare them for the workforce, they are empowered to succeed.

To learn more about how you can help, about upcoming events, the programs we offer or to book a tour, please visit us at, email us at [email protected], or call us at 982-3663.

Thank you,

The CREW at Harvest Manitoba 

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to date.

 Now that the club is closed until further notice, we need their assistance more then ever. 

This has been anything but a normal year for the Association as we confronted Covid-19.

The impact on the club finances has been immense. With the necessity to cancel St. Patrick’s celebrations & Folklorama, our two main fundraisers, in addition to losing all rental potential & club functions the association has generated no income since March. We have seen our share of good times and bad, but Covid-19 has been a complete game changer for our finances. Therefore the IAM board is asking for your support in it’s fundraising efforts.

As you have heard by now, after much consultation and consideration, this years Folklorama Festival has been cancelled. This decision was made not only by the Board of the Irish Association but we also received official notification from Folklorama on April 24, 2020. We all know this is the right decision in order to keep our Folklorama family safe and in good health.

We would like to thank all our extraordinary volunteers who dedicate so much time, ingenuity and energy to make the Irish Pavilion one of the top cultural experiences. Without those special folks who organize, build sets, showcase their Irish talents, plot and plan behind the scenes, attend meetings, chef up meals for 100’s, this is your year to take a breather and let your minds wander to making next years Pavilion “top notch”.

To the Volunteers who attend nightly during Folklorama week, “What would we do without you?” Thank you so much for your tireless dedication night after night with hopefully a bit of craic and food thrown in for good times! We hope to see you all back in the fold next year.

Folklorama 2021 will be held next year and for our Irish Pavilion it will be held August 1st-7th. Our venue site will remain the same and has been booked for 2021.

All our Best, Stay Safe, Social Distance, Wash Your Hands & Be Healthy
