first_imgAs part of Errigal Arts Fesival, Aisteoirí Ghaoth Dobhair will perform a play entitled ‘Le Bánú an Lae’ in An Grianán Theatre, Letterkenny, on Sunday the 10th July at 8pm.This three-act-play, written by Tomás ‘Ac Giolla Bhrighde, is set during the time of the War of Independence in Ireland. Robert Munro, an Anglo-Irish landlord (and Parnellite) has to re-evaluate his loyalties when confronted with the unexpected arrival of an unwelcome visitor forcing him to face the harsh realities of the War.This 3 act play, as Gaeilge, focuses on the political and social upheaval of the time. It reflects on the impact that Parnell, the 1916 Rising and the Great War had on Ireland and her people. Aisteoirí Ghaoth Dobhair have embarked on an ambitious campaign to refurbish their historic local theatre facility, presenting a variety of art forms in the medium of the Irish language. The committee have recently secured state funding of €480,000 towards a total project cost of €600,000.Foireann;ROIBEARD MUNRO: Séan Ó GallchóirMAJOR RICHARD: Dónall Ó CnaimhsíSÉAN: Séan Ó MaolagáinMÁIRE: Máire Eirini IoannidisEILIS: Bernadette Ní DhuibhirDAPHNE MUNRO: Áine Ní Bhreisleain JOHNNIE MUNRO: Colm Mac Giolla EasbuicIKE O CEALLAIGH: Manus Ó DuibhirFEAR AN IRA: Aodán Ó CearbhaillFEAR AN PHOSTA: Cathal Ó Fearraigh SEARLUS: Liam Ó CnaimhsíFoireann stáitse;Léiritheoir :- Aisteoirí Ghaoth DobhairStiúrthóir :- Eoghan Mac Giolla BhrighdeStiúrthóir Cúnta :- Suzanne Ní Gallachóir & Pól mac CumhailFeistiú/ Props:- Maighread Ní DhubhgainTógálaithe Set :- Séan Ó Duibhir/ Manus Ó DomhnaillSoilse :- Cathal Ó GallchóirFuaim:- Niall HackettIf you would like to help raise the remaining funds or find out more, visit or email [email protected]Í GHAOTH DOBHAIR TO PERFORM ‘LE BÁNÚ AN LAE’ THIS SUNDAY was last modified: July 7th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:aisteoirí ghaoth dobhairAn Grianan Theatrele bánú an laeletterkennytomás ‘ac giolla bhrighdelast_img read more
