The dramatic story of the IRA ambush of members of the Crown Forces near Milltown, County Kerry in 1921 is being presented as a new play in Milltown Community Hall this November. Ballymacandy is based on the best-selling book by local historian and author, Owen O’Shea, and involves a cast of almost thirty locals, many of whom live close the location where five RIC and Black and Tans were killed on 1 June 1921, just six weeks before the end of the War of Independence.
Tickets for the highly anticipated play, which is written by Owen O’Shea and directed by Mike O’Halloran, will go on sale soon (online) for the five-night run at the beginning of November. Check back here soon for ticket details and updates. Ticket sales will also be announced on social media and local media.
