HeadStuff Lectures – In association with Hawk’s Well Theatre

July 12, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Join comedian and presenter Gearóid Farrelly for a fun night of ‘Lectures’ with wonderful speakers talking passionately about different topics.

HeadStuff lectures are not mass, not school and definitely not Ted Talks. For the very first time, the popular long-running HeadStuf Lectures is leaving Dublin and is coming west for Cairde Sligo Arts Festival! Comedian Gearóid Farrelly will host, bringing his mischievous and charming humour to the proceedings. Guests include Kevin McGahern, Aine Gallagher, Eve Darcy, Ciaran Conlife, and Tony Cantwell.

How To Give The Best Best Man’s Speech by Cathal Toe aka Kevin McGahern

An Idiot’s Guide To Being A Human – Eve Darcy
(Basically, it’s about life and whether or not there’s any meaning to it)

Soft As Shit Priests – Tony Cantwell
“An investigative deep-dive into the softening morals of the priesthood compared to their predecessors a decade or two ago – priests have gone soft, and Tony is here to expose it.”

Stanley’s Last Trip: An Itinerary of Errors – Ciaran Conliffe
“This is the story of one of the last great Victorian adventures in Africa. A tale of reckless incompetence, of death in the Congo, and of a scandal that tainted a proud Irish family’s reputation forever after.”

Irish Matters – Aine Gallagher“an exploration of why speaking Irish is exactly the same as making mug cakes”.

And more! Talks About Stuff You Didn’t Think You’d Care About…

Tickets: €14
