Friels's 'Buaiteoirí' in Loughrea library

Splódar Theatre Company recently toured Buaiteoirí, (Irish language translation of 'Winners' by Brian Friel). Loughrea library hosted the play on 8 Samhain.
Friel’s masterpiece is surely the Romeo and Juliet of Irish literature as the ill-starred lovers Mag and Joe find societal and family pressures too much for them.
Strangely, this tale of tragedy with its hilarious humorous sequences awakens feelings of optimism rather than despair as it draws us deftly into the charged and changing world of the young lovers. Neasa Ní Chuanaigh and Iorras Ó Gallachóir played the characters of Mag and Joe.
