'Anything Goes' by Cole Porter

Dun Laoghaire Musical & Dramatic Society

  • 📅Wednesday, March 11, 2020
  • 🕥20:00 - 22:30
  • 🏟Pavilion Theatre, Dún Laoghaire (map)

Come along and meet Reno, a brassy evangelist turned nightclub singer, Billy our hero, Hope his love and her domineering mother Evangeline, as well as gangsters, molls, angels and sailors.

Based on an original book by P.G. Wodehouse, author of the Jeeves & Wooster stories, you can expect a plot that is dastardly, intricate, and results in an absolutely irresolvable tangle…though of course it is happily resolved by the Finale!

And all set to the incomparable music of Cole Porter classics, such as I Get a Kick Out of You, You’re The Top, Friendship, It’s De-Lovely, Blow Gabriel Blow, and of course the title song Anything Goes.

'Policing Strategies: the Criminal Assets Bureau and other effective initiatives'

Factna Murphy, 18th Garda Commissioner (2007-2010) First Chief Bureau Officer, Criminal Assets Bureau (1996-1999)

The Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) was established as a body corporate with perpetual succession in 1996 and is founded on the multi-agency concept, drawing together law enforcement officers, tax officials, social welfare officials as well as other specialist officers including legal officers, forensic analysts and financial analysts. This multi-agency concept is regarded by some as the model for other European jurisdictions.

The CAB is not a division of the Garda Síochána but rather an independent body corporate although it has many of the powers normally given to the Gardaí. The Chief Bureau Officer is drawn from a member of the Garda Síochána holding the rank of Chief Superintendent and is appointed by the Garda Commissioner. The remaining staff of the CAB are appointed by the Minister for Justice and Equality. CAB members retain their original powers and possibilities as if they were working within their separate entities and have direct access to information and databases that their original organizations are allowed by law. This ability to share information was described by the Garda Síochána Inspectorate in its Crime Investigation Report of October 2014 as "a good model that could be replicated outside of CAB".
