"A day in the Death of Francis Ledwidge" is a new play by local writer Richard Ball performed at Solstice over three nights, 01-03 October under Covid restricted audience numbers

"I'm alive and dead, a voice in your head"

Francis Ledwidge, soldier and poet, bridges a century and more, to speak to us in his own words of his two great loves; the local landscape of Slane and Ellie Vaughey. Blown to pieces in 1917, his unique voice remains suspended forever in time, in its first flowering. He was only 29 and destined, in the opinion of Lord Dunsany, to be the poet of the age.
