Beautiful sunshine in Cork yesterday made it seem like continental Europe. Strolling along Oliver Plunkett Street, I was struck by the crowds of people sitting outside bars and cafes eating, drinking, having a relaxed afternoon. Outside Market Lane Restaurant, I joined Mary-Anne, Darius, Margaret and She Who Shall Remain Nameless for a chatty, relaxed lunch in the balmy sunshine, before heading to Crane Lane Theatre to catch Sharon, the latest play from Charleville’s Katie Holly, following on from last year’s highly acclaimed Marian.
Sharon was excellent with Irene Kelleher in the main role and well worth a visit. It’s being performed again this afternoon and next weekend. It’s funny, poignant and moving with some great acting from all three actors.
