Sparrowhawk a new play by John Mc Manus

Three men meet in a Cavan forest and all are in a state of despair: Benny because his beloved Mayo has lost yet another All Ireland final; Cian because his best friend is missing and presumed dead; Mattie because he has discovered the reason why there are no old people in Dublin. A darkly funny and tragic tale.

“Amazing what can flare up upon a quiet morning in the middle of nowhere...”

An inspired collaboration with Director Padraic McIntyre, Cavan Townhall Theatre and, writer of The Night Joe Dolan’s Car Broke Down.  The performance will take place in Dún A Rí Forest Park, Kingscourt, Co. Cavan, beside the car park on the Carrickmacross Road.
