REVERED podcasting duo The Limerick Lady (aka Ann Blake and Emma Langford) will take their monthly podcast to The Record Room, Commercial Bar for a LIVE podcast featuring chat and music this Thursday November 24.
It promises to be an uplifting and illuminating celebration of the decade of centenaries.

The Limerick Lady LIVE event, hosted by Emma Langford and Ann Blake and featuring expert guest, historian Sharon Slater, will explore the experiences and stories of a selection of historic LGBTQ+ women in Ireland between 1912 and 1923.
Beyond the chat the audience will be treated to live performances from musical comedy duo The Wild Geeze and singer-songwriter Abe Soare.

As well as taking place in front of a live audience, this event will be recorded for release in early 2023.
Tickets will be available on the door.
