Le Bánú an Lae in An Grianán Theatre on Sunday evening

ON Sunday evening at 8pm, Aisteoirí Ghaoth Dobhair will perform a play entitled Le Bánú an Lae in An Grianán Theatre in Letterkenny.

This three-act-play, written by Tomás ‘Ac Giolla Bhrighde, is set during the time of the War of Independence in Ireland. It is part of the Errigal Arts Festival.

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. Set during the War of Independence, this three-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.
