Gort’s film and cookery showing

November 18th, 2010

The lights were dimmed and the movie rolled in Gort as over 50 young people from the Galway community came together for the local No Name Club’s first cinema night. Exit Through the Gift Shop, the story of a French immigrant living in Los Angeles and his obsession with street art, was the premiered filmed at the club’s new night that took place on Friday November 12th.  More than 50 young people assembled at the community centre in Gort for the showing of the film and the night was organised in partnership with Foróige. It is hoped the cinema night will become a regular feature within the Gort Community, with the initial plan to run such a night once a month.

The County Galway Club is now planning to learn valuable cookery skills from a generation that has the expertise and experience to pass onto its teenage members. On Saturday December 4th, the No Name Club and the local branch of the Irish Countrywomen’s Association will gather at the ICA Hall in Gort and important lessons will be learned. The ladies of the ICA will teach the teenagers of the club how to cook seven or eight dishes and the hope is these skills will stand to the younger people for many years to come. This is the second year the event has been organised and both groups have a close working relationship, as the teenagers of the No Name Club work regularly with the ICA members to pass on their skill and expertise on matters that would be more familiar to them.
