Jon Kenny visits The Palace Theatre
Star of screen and stage Jon Kenny paid a visit to the Palace Theatre Fermoy on Friday last the 11th of April to throw his well educated eye over the theatre.
Jon – who is famous for both turns as a comedic and a dramatic stage and film actor – visited the Palace Theatre on his way to Cork where he was starring in John B. Keane’s ‘The Matchmaker’.
Present were Kieran Barry, Manager of Fermoy Community Youth Centre/Palace Theatre Fermoy; Barry O’Neill Technical Manager and Danny Higgins, Supervisor – Fermoy Sports and Culture Community Employment Scheme.
Jon was very impressed with the Palace Theatre and saw ‘huge potential’ for the theatre to be used as a venue for national and local theatre groups to perform in. He was also very impressed with our location over looking the Blackwater River and said ‘it must be the best view in the town’!!!
Hopefully in the next few months we will be seeing Jon not only visiting the Palace Theatre but performing in it!!!
A very special thank you goes out to Danny Higgins who made the introduction possible.
