Imagine this. It’s 2032. The people have spoken on both sides of the border and Ireland is a brand new 32-county country. There’s a new flag. A new anthem. There’s even a new capital! As Unionists holiday in the south, discovering the imperial joys of ‘Royal’ Dublin – southerners discover the ancient landscape of Ulster beyond the retail outlets of Newry and Titanic Belfast. Magical things happen when you create a new country – where EVERYTHING is on the table – and it’s exciting. 

Leave all your preconceptions at the door. It’s not a United Ireland. It’s not an ‘agreed’ Ireland. It’s not ‘shared’ – nor is it ‘new’. It’s simply-  ‘I can’t believe it’s not Ireland’!     But first…we have to get there….

Those of you who seen Paddy Cullivan’s sell-out show “The Murder Of Michael Collins” here at the ICC in 2022 and 2023  and his show “The Murder Of Wolfe Tone in September 2023, will all know what a brilliant actor and comic entertainer Paddy is. Paddy has performed his sold-out historical entertainment shows all over Ireland and here in London at the Irish Cultural Centre. He presents political and aesthetic narratives from past and present in a new and exciting way, incorporating comedy, songs, imagery and history in a unique, original and passionate way! Don’t miss Paddy’s new show  – I Can’t Believe It’s Not Ireland – which promises to be an brilliant night of entertainment!
