Fr Barry and the Workhouse Master, a play by local playwright Paul Maher about the Cashel priest who became a workhouse pauper, staged during Cashel Arts Festival - is to be revived for just two more nights.
It will be staged this Thursday and Friday, October 5 and 6, at 8.30pm, admission just €8.
The play was very well received during the Arts Festival, playing to packed houses at Cashel Courthouse, kindly offered to the Festival by the Courts Service for a play that runs like a courtroom drama.
Author Paul Maher who lives in Annacarty expressed surprise at how well the play was received: “Fr Barry was no doubt a difficult man but the actor Liam O Maoldomhnaigh plays him with great sympathy and understanding and for some reason the play seems to have struck a chord with people.”
