Kilrush Drama Group Autumn Play – Unforgiven by John McDwyer.

A night out to look forward to for all the family, as Kilrush Drama Group present their autumn play from October 13th – 17th in Ballyroebuck Hall.

This year’s production, directed by the busy Mick Byrne, is Unforgiven by John Dwyer and is a real circus of a play set in County Leitrim and promises a laugh a minute. It is an exposition of Irish rural life where nothing is ever as it seems to be. P.J. played by Joe Sinnott awaits the death of his father so that he can inherit the farm and marry his neighbour Mary and live happily ever after. (We welcome the return of Kay Cahill in the role of Mary) His brother Seamie played by Brendan Doyle (AKA One Word) holds a watching brief while Mary is blissfully unaware of P.J.’s plans for her.

When the father ultimately dies, another brother Eamonn played by Tony Hickey arrives home from America and a colony of cats land among the pigeons in this hilarious play. Booking opens the week of the 6th. Booking Number: 087 – 1429325. Children are welcome and will enjoy the hilarity – but be advised that the play does contain some strong language.
Carnew: A Town of History & Heritage, a book covering Carnews rich history and heritage with fascinating facts about the many thriving businesses established in the town, its agricultural heritage, rich sporting history and information about residents who served in the Great War.
