Straight Outta Connemara  theatre finished

Straight Outta Connemara

Friday 31st March, 8pm

Páraic Breathnach comes from a long line of story tellers and his new version of Straight Outta Connamara tells of his long and difficult journey from the wind swept shores of South Connamara to Henry Street. His story telling will lead the audience on a cosán dearg of detours, diversions and devilment visiting various places around the known world and end up where he started from. The stories recall an Ireland where the Church still reigned, where politicians were still respectable and the cosmhuintir knew their place. Breathnach spent most of his youth trying to get the hell out of Connemara and cast off the shackles of ignorance and repression that dominated the West at that time. The show casts a cold eye on the society of that time but finds humour and laughter even in the most miserable circumstances. This show is not suitable for children or people of sensitive disposition.

Tickets: €12 / €10.  Early booking advised.
