Byron U/18 girls basketballers undefeated in regional competition

The Byron Bay Beez girls U/18 squad are undefeated and sit on top of the North Eastern Junior League (NEJL) after two of four rounds.

Aine is on 28 August, from 5pm at Byron Theatre.

Having lived in so-called ‘Australia’ for a decade, Irish born singer-songwriter, Áine Tyrrell, rewrites what is imaginable every step of the way. She has carved a unique musical path, melding her own Irish roots from the ancient limestone rocks of Country Clare with her respect of the red dirt roads of 60,000 years of Indigenous culture in Australia. 

With, More Blacks, More Dogs, More Irish, Tyrrell decolonises the stories we’ve inherited and enables us to start thinking about what stories have been hidden in order for us to forget the truth of who we are and where we are.

Through a mix of visuals, song and storytelling, Áine brings these hidden Irish narratives to the forefront, weaving together a mix of modern and traditional stories to show the evolving Irish cultural landscape and what it means to be Irish, a woman, and on stolen land.

The show includes a panel discussion with Bunyarra Culture Collective, celebrating the parallels of culture, tradition and place, and the inter-woven history between Irish and First Nations People.

See this show 28 August, from 5pm at  Byron Theatre. 

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. If only we could give back so called ‘Eire’ to it’s first nations people. Unfortunately your Celtic ancestors invaded and wiped them out. I see animals conquering each others territory in the forest. Even bacteria fight of territorial dominance. More access to resources means more offspring. 99.9999% of all species have gone extinct, this is how nature does that. None of us like to think about that for the same reason we don’t like to think how that steak got on our plate.
