What’s On

There is always something happening at Strokestown Park...
We offer range of cultural and outdoor events for all ages and interests.

"In the Midst of Plenty" a Folk musical

“In the Midst of Plenty” centers on the stories of women living on the Strokestown estate during the Great Famine, and is set against the backdrop of the plot to assassinate Major Denis Mahon, the landlord of Strokestown, in 1847.  

The book, music, and lyrics were written by Amy Day over the course of the pandemic, and our production at Strokestown Park House is the musical’s debut featuring a cast of professional actors and musicians.
