It was with much sadness that we learned of the death of Larry McCluskey ex CEO of Cavan Monaghan VEC (1980 – 2007) and member of the Arts Council.
Larry was a tireless promoter of the Arts in Co. Monaghan and was involved with the Patrick Kavanagh Centre over the years. He initiated the Patrick Kavanagh Student Poetry Competition in 1984. We remember especially the Kavanagh Weekend 2010 when despite the extremely hazardous weather of heavy snow and frost; he brought his outstanding production of Brian Friel’s ‘Philadelphia Here I Come’ to Inniskeen to ensure his audience were not disappointed.
