Tori Lee is a drama facilitator for young people, an actor and playwright.

Our deepest condolences…

It is with great regret that the Board & staff of the Glens Arts Centre, Manorhamilton, have heard of the passing of Orla Parkinson Coombs on Sunday 13th May. Many of us worked with Orla on community arts projects in Leitrim and Dublin since the 1990s and we were always welcomed by her enthusiastic smile, professional support and community leadership for arts and creative writing at Cluainin Library. Our sympathy and thoughts go to Scott (former Glens Centre Chairperson) and family
