Gombeens bring their show to 10 Galway Libraries.

The Gombeens, Jonathan Gunning and Miquel Barcelo are two self confessed social clowns who spread the word of a more just society, through laughter. Their show Stories of a Yellow Town was created from interviews with both Brazilian and Irish residents of Gort. The show gives a voice to the migrants in the area while helping people to understand and empathise with their struggle.
The show is being brought to schoolchildren across Galway over the next two weeks as the Gombeens visit 10 Branch Libraries in Galway. The shows are funded by The Arts office, Galway Co. Council.
