Lee Valley Enterprise Board created this website to promote all aspects of the town of Macroom and the beautiful Lee Valley in which it lies. Here you will find information about the business and enterprises of the area, the schools and clubs that provide education and recreation for its people and news of the people themselves in the Lee Valley Outlook pages.
Lee Valley Enterprise Board is planning a programme packed full of entertainment at Riverside Park Hotel this Autumn/Winter with a lively mix of music, local talent, nostalgia, theatre & dance.
Any profits the Lee Valley Enterprise Board make from the shows listed below will go back into local projects, including the restoration of the Church of Ireland in Macroom to create a cultural & tourism amenity which will hugely benefit the area.
Here is what we have lined up so far!
Fri October 27th, Sat October 28th & Sun October 29th at 8:00pm Sat November 4th & Sun November 5th at 8:00pm
The World Premiere of the New Musical "Sir Henry" will take place this October. Based on true events, this show tells the farcical story of the misadventures of Sir Henry Browne Hayes, the notorious play boy who sought to gain the hand of the young heiress Mary Pike as a sure cure to his financial woes by nefarious means. See how one man's actions caused scandal throughout the British Empire in 1797, under the palpable tension of insurrection in Ireland and set against the backdrop of revolution in France and America. Written by the hugely talented Alan Kiely and Kevin Connolly and directed by the brilliant Cathal Mac Cabe (RTE), another hit is in store! Auditions will take place in late August.
