Theatre Makers present, by kind permission of the Kelly family The Tayman, the Tomcat and Others
The stories of Eamon Kelly, the Seanachaí as told by Jack Healy.
Adaptation by Ger Fitzgibbon and Jack Healy. Directed by Ger Fitzgibbon.
Come and hear Jack Healy bring to life a compendium of Eamon Kelly’s most comic and colourful characters. Carpentry, drink, hat-wearing, emigration and devilment weave their way through these marvellous stories. We hear about runaway fillies, Ned Connors, who was “fierce for the drink”, Bridgie and her curious request to the carpenter, the three-in-a-bed escapade of the Tayman, and Mick the Fiddler with his adventures in New York.

Marion written by Katie Holly
Twentysomething Marion has realised, all of a sudden, that she’s a grown-up; in love, life, the 12 pubs of Christmas, not forgetting the on-going stream of ‘advice’ in her head from well-meaning friends and family. There’s “walk into the bar like you f*ckin’ own it, girl” best friend Jacqui, “fail to prepare, prepare to fail” Uncle Ciaran and her “I only say these things for your own good” mam.
Written by Charleville’s own Katie Holly, the brilliantly funny Marion stars Laura O’Mahony as seen in RTÉ’s Republic of Telly, Comedy Bites, Ronanism and Sketch! Sit back and expect a riot of laughs in the lovely atmosphere upstairs at the Roundy.
