GEMMA Carcaterra, who served as director of Glór since 2011, has died suddenly.
Helen Rackard, chair of the board of Glór said, “She will be very sadly missed by those who worked with her. We extend our deepest sympathies to Gemma’s husband, Colm Clarke, her three children, Ava, Rióna and Coen, to her parents, Rosa and Rob and to her brothe,r James.”
Originally from England, Gemma lived in Ireland for several years and had also worked with Daghda Theatre in Limerick.
Councillor Mary Howard, a member of the Board of Glór, said, “This is devastating news for everyone associated with the arts community in County Clare. Her enthusiasm for her role at glór was infectious and she was very proactive, as well as having a close working relationship with members of the Board.
“Gemma was a very special lady. I recall with fondness the day she informed me that not only was she pregnant but she was carrying triplets, who are now 5 months old. Since hearing the news of Gemma’s passing this morning, my thoughts and prayers are with her family and her extended circle of friends.”
