Culture Night – Banagher

Banagher celebrates Culture Night

Military Manoeuvres Projected is an open-air screening of a short film created by artist, Patricia Hurl, local school children, parents and the wider community of Banagher. In 1891 artist, Richard Moynan created the painting “Military Manoeuvres” – illustrating a crowded street-scene depicting a group of children amusing themselves by pretending to be a regimental band. On Culture Night 2016, a re-imagined version of the original painting was created and documented. On Fri 22 Sept, for Culture Night 2017, a public screening of this re-enactment will take place in Banagher Town from 8-10pm.
