The play depicts the late summer days when love briefly seems possible for three of the Mundy sisters (Chris, Rose, and Kate) and the family welcomes home the frail elder brother, who has returned from a life as a missionary in Africa.

Tipperary Excel Art Gallery is delighted to be hosting artist Lisa Griffin, a Self-taught fine art photographer and a native of Tipperary. The exhibition opens on 21st November. Lisa Griffin is an award winning, photographer whose work focuses not only on fashion and portraiture but the exploration of self-value, feminine beauty and isolation in today’s culture. Her work has been described as falling “somewhere between beauty and dream, and through her eyes we are instantly transported to a storybook never been written before. Her imagery signifies an element to Irish art ranging from Yeats to Wilde,” – Literary Orphans publication 2014. Professional, engaging and passionate are just some of the words that come to mind when asked to describe photography produced by Lisa. After attending the Centre of Creative Arts and Media, Galway and Lis secured a degree in Fine Art specialising in Printing Making – through photography. Her work has been featured in national and international publications and media such as The Irish Times, Literary Orphans, Barehands, Cork Evening Echo, Vogue Italia and much more. The Art Gallery is open Monday-Friday with some restriction on Monday and Tuesday morning. Please check with reception or by contacting Tipperary Excel on 062-80520. The exhibition is well worth a visit.
