A flurry of excitement can be detected throughout the parishes of Kilcummin and Glenflesk with news that the neighbouring clubs are joining forces for a second time to present A Night at the OsKars.

The big event is scheduled to take place at the Gleneagle INEC Arena on Thursday, December 7 and a capacity attendance is again expected.

It is five years since the two clubs first came together to undertake this type of fundraiser which was the first time it had been done in Munster. It was a resounding success night and a fantastic buzz was observed around the two parishes throughout the rehearsals and filming.

“There has been a huge interest in the communities to do the OsKaRs again as who took part last time just loved it,” said Derry Healy of the Glenflesk club.

Several local actors will be involved in seven new films will be produced and filmed this time around, the titles of which will be revealed at the official launch night in mid-June.

While the rehearsals and filming won’t take place until the autumn, plans are well underway at this stage and the organising committee involves members of both clubs.

An Information night will take place on Monday next, May 29 at 8.30pm in the Killarney Heights Hotel and all are welcome to attend.

This will give anyone interested in taking part a chance to find out what is involved and they will hear from Kevin Rowe Productions, the events company behind the venture.

The casting night will take place on June 12 and those who wish to take part must be over 16 and anyone under 18 will need to have a parent present for rehearsals and filming. Participants don’t need to be members of the clubs as this is an opportunity for people in the Kilcummin, Glenflesk and surrounding areas to see themselves on the big screen.

“When we did the OsKaRs in 2018, we had no idea what a huge success it would be. It went far beyond raising funds for both clubs, it lifted the spirits of both parishes in a way that we could never have foreseen,” said Niamh Dwyer of Kilcummin GAA Club.

“That’s why we have decided to do it all over again and we look forward to an exciting six months ahead,” she said.

Anyone interested is invited to the information night or those who want to find out more can contact Niamh on 087-9801105 or Derry on 087-2707899. Be wise and advertise where it’s seen. Email: or Call 087-2229761
