After 18 years at the helm, Caroline Senior is stepping down as Artistic Director at Garter Lane Arts Centre. In that time she has overseen the significant expansion of the arts centre, including creating sprOg, the pre-Spraoi children's festival, Well, the festival of arts and wellbeing, dance residencies, co-productions with Waterford Youth Arts, WIT, Little Red Kettle amongst others. In 2006, she supervised the €1.5 million renovation of the 18th century former Quaker Meeting House, turning it into one of Ireland's foremost art centres. Other highlights of her time at Garter Lane include working with Jim Nolan to commission, produce and tour his plays Brighton, Dreamland and bringing his latest work Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye on a nationwide tour earlier this year.

Garter Lane was opened in 1984 and over the past 33 years has had dozens of world premières including The Kings of the Kilburn High Road by Jimmy Murphy, Lily's Labyrinth by Marian Ingoldsby and Ben Hennessy, not to mention dance productions and art exhibitions. With the support of the Arts Council, Waterford Council, the Department of Social

Protection and its patrons and friends, the centre employs 23 people and stages a year-round programme of both professional and amateur theatre, dance, film, music, children's art and exhibitions and is at the heart of the arts in Waterford.

Dr Mark Rowe, chairman of the board said, “Caroline has made an immense contribution to both the development of the arts in Waterford and to the work of the arts centre, and we and the staff will miss her verve and drive. One of her most enduring legacies is the wonderful theatre refurbishment that she managed in 2006, ensuring that our audiences will have the best arts experience in our beautiful theatre for many years to come.“

Caroline Senior said “It's been a hard decision to leave a job that I have enjoyed and loved so much, particularly when fun is part of the job description. Working with the board and the amazing staff at the arts centre, it has been a huge privilege to put together an arts programme for Garter Lane. However, it's time for me to move on, and I know that the arts centre will continue to develop and be at the heart of the arts in Waterford.”

The board will shortly start the recruitment process for a new artistic director to further develop the work of the arts centre both nationally and within Waterford's new cultural quarter.

    Paradise papersOne of the most surprising things about the release of the copious amounts of tax details of some of the richest people on the planet wasn't the names of the people involved but the fact that three of them were actors from Mrs. Brown's Boys. Between them the three had accounts nearing 2 million euros in off-shore accounts and let's face it, these people aren't exactly Robert De Niros or Meryl Streeps but three bog standard, and that's putting it mildly, actors, from a middling comedy serie …
