Earagail Arts Festival in collaboration with Dublin Theatre Festival

Doireann Coady & Oonagh Murphy

Across 2022, artists Doireann Coady and Oonagh Murphy are leading a period of creative research and development with The Clonmany Community Centre. Developing relationships across generations, the artists will collaborate with community members to explore local history and geography through story. This early stage of development will function as a springboard to what will become a community authored film work in 2023.

Doireann Coady is a London-based theatre artist who has over 10 years experience making work about some of the most untold elements of Irish life. Previous work includes It was Easy In The End (2019), I’m Not Here (2018) and It’s Not Over (2016). Awards include the Arts Council Next Generation Bursary and the Pan Pan Mentorship Bursary. In 2020 she participated in Dublin Theatre Festival’s residency “Unacknowledged Loss” led by Barbara Raes (Beyond the Spoken, Belgium).

Oonagh Murphy is a creative producer and director with over a decade of leading projects at the intersection of art and social justice. As a director, she has worked for some of the leading companies in Ireland and the UK, such as The Gate, Druid, Lyric Belfast and Donmar Warehouse. Oonagh co-founded Change of Address, a three-year community project with refugees and asylum seekers in Ireland, for which she won the Jo Cox Young Changemaker Award. In 2021, she directed a series of short films, written by first time writers produced by The Big House, a charity working with care-leavers in London.

Project curated by Willie White (Dublin Theatre Festival).
