A new comedy play by former Leitrim GAA player and renowned playwright, Seamus O’Rourke, will be staged in Ringtown GAA Clubhouse on Sunday, April 19th, with starting time of 8.00pm. Admission 10.00 euro. The play tells the story of a man from the day his father falls through the roof of the byre, time on the building sites of England, his return to Ireland and arguments with his sisters, ongoing battles with anger issues, depression and obesity, but most all, through everything, the story of HOPE.
