This evening's Ceili is dedicated to our dear departed friend Kari Kokko.


Jonathan Lynn is a Kilkenny man who emigrated to Canada where he is a set designer with the Toronto Irish Players theatre, among other things. One of those other things is his acting ability. A master of the monologue, a wonderful mimic and a musician to boot he entertained a rapt and appreciative audience on a recent visit home. Jonathan Lynn is as good as they come and his one-man show, The Spoken Word, includes excerpts from Robert Service, Percy French, Brian Friel, Brendan Behan, John B Keane and Patrick Kavanagh to name but a few, not to mention his own original work. This was entertainment with a capital E and the man deserves a bigger audience than Bollards which was chock-a-block. Perhaps our Arts Festival folk might take a look at this talented man, this local talented man, and find a spot for him in next year’s festival. Kilkenny Castle Tower would be a perfect venue and Jonathan Lynn I guarantee you will not disappoint. Gerry Moran Column, Kilkenny People Aug 28th 2008.
