2018 Mental Health Awareness Lecture


Free Screening of The Drummer & the Keeper


The USAC Cork Summer Program is delighted to invite you to a special, free screening of The Drummer & The Keeper a film by Irish director Nick Kelly, which will take place on the UCC campus this Friday, 29th June at 2:30pm.  Nick Kelly, who wrote and directed the film, will join us for the screening and a Q&A following the film.

The Irish Film Institute describes the film this way:

Drummer Gabriel (Dermot Murphy), recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder, is forced to curb his erratic behaviour when his therapist changes his medication and insists he join a special football team. When he meets goalkeeper Christopher (Jacob McCarthy), a 17-year-old with Asperger’s Syndrome, a fraught relationship gradually develops into a firm friendship as each learns to respect the other’s foibles. Writer/director/composer Nick Kelly captures the mental health pitfalls of a rock’n’roll lifestyle with sharp insight, while his portrait of a young man with Asperger’s, drawn with affection and deep understanding, is perfectly observed. This uplifting and comedic feature début deservedly bagged the Best Irish First Feature Award at this year’s Galway Film Fleadh.

The screening will take place on Friday 29th June at 2.30 pm in UCC’s Film and Screen Media auditorium, located in the basement of the Kane building (B10). See #48 on the UCC campus map.

This award-winning film has been acclaimed in Ireland and beyond, so we hope that you can join us for what is sure to be a wonderful event. Contact Mary Steele ( or Tamara Daily ( for information.

If that were not enough, Nick Kelly will also be performing music at The Friary. The gig is scheduled for 8:30 pm and The Friary is located at 62 Shandon St, Cork.


But Now I’m On This Side: Reporting on Suicide Deaths

A Friend on the Walk

I “grew up” from a career perspective in marketing. My years at L Brands and then at Cheryl’s Cookies taught me a great deal about how to communicate with customers. I was good at my job and was part of a leadership team that saw significant sales growth over the years. I understood the importance of appealing to my audience in a way that would win their business.

From August 7, 2012 and prior, I would have told anyone who didn’t like how a business was being run where the door was. That would even include businesses I wasn’t that familiar with. If people would complain about how the media did their job my typical line of thinking would go like this: “They are reporters. They have a job to do. Their job means reporting in a way that garners as much attention as possible. It’s at least, in…
