Joe neary joe was born in coventry. But raising cornwall by father from dublin. The mother from the midland's after graduating from university. She carved out a niche for her. One woman shows being nominated for a perrier award in edinburgh in two thousand four. And then appearing in films such as darkest hour and suffragette as well as working with mitchell and webb armando iannucci. And johnny vegas with whom she is arguably best known having played judith in ideal on top of all this she's a gifted storyteller artist puppeteer and singer has an infectious joy of life and will no doubt blush at all of this.

And there's an article in the guardian things that she wishes younger cell phone and she said in her forties. She wished she'd known the her children would be okay not to worry about them and the one thing she regrets is not giving them what they didn't have at school so going to concerts listening to classical music building stuff out of wood all the stuff. You don't really get to much at school and that really was a comfort. I thought yeah..

So i've had to re record some of the questions see if you can spot the join livable. Irish center has been running since nineteen sixty four first of all in mount pleasant and now in boundary lane. How it's changed. The effects of lockdown and thoughts of the future are all on the agenda with my guests. Patrick goal acting chair of the coordinating committee. Events officer angela. Billing and bomb manager nile gibney. There's an online gig with the rogues in the offing so we glide straight past the how you doing to patrick's first memories of the old centre muslim was probably she wasn't she wasn't there right from the start. But she started going in the late sixties so it was always sort of out of our lives and mainly bothering me system. He says was a dunster and then we would go to functions and masses and see bonds. And that's the thing an and the tire center involved because my daughter start at dunston She's just left the house. She's now nearly says he and she's got her own kid who i'm sure he's already listening to music. He's eight weeks also show going soon So it's a generational thing really you either get. It was such a good good thing to get into. And i think really being sort of own obsessed with ireland since it was a teenager eighty music history literature going to the place of gotten out through the eyes center. Many great people see many great musical under the types of entertainment. And it's been a real privilege to be involved in a place. Sometimes i was your first memory of it actually. My first memory is a downside. I went to one dancing lesson. There was a lady called maureen bolger on the school system. I think it was already dancing. Will expose along and she made me go into the line to learn a step and got sold off appointing. I left instead of my right foot. And i ran back to me. Mom probably in tears and never.
