Bess O'Leary

The Real gold of Ireland

tel. 01772 712453

A witty young lass who manages to keep a smile on her face despite the onslaught of the 1846 Irish Potato Famine

Ideal for more intimate post-dinner/meeting events, The Real Gold Of Ireland is a bitter-sweet dramalogue where the audience embraces the full journey of the heroine from a care-free girl through to an anxious mother. They will learn the true facts of the famine but as Bess learnt them, by word of mouth, and Sunday Mass. Yet this is no depressing tale. Like a lot of people facing great adversity, Bess draws her spirit from the very well that is Ireland. She is loved, she is strong but will she survive?
