The first theatre show of 2022 at An Táin Arts Centre in Dundalk, takes place on January 22 with local talent Declan Gorman, as he mixes memoir and the magic of live theatre to bring to life James Joyce’s much-loved January classic, “The Dead” in this warm and moving performance.

On January 6th 1982, a young Irish emigrant borrows an English language book from a library in Munich. He reads it over one evening. The course of his life is changed….
