After his valiant performance at Wimbledon Conor Niland is a far cry from Ireland’s notorious first contender in the competition, a convicted killer by the name of Vere St Leger Goold.
Waterford-born Goold competed in the tournament in 1879 and ended up dying in prison after being convicted of a murder in Monte Carlo.
Love All journals the terrible tale of a fallen Irish sporting legend. A hangover may have kept him from the Wimbledon prize, but a decapitated head in a hat box almost sent him to the gallows. Join us at The Source for a rapid-fire homicidal ride of Victorian melodrama!
Directed by Thurles’ own Donal Gallagher, and hot on the heels of his panto smash with Cinderella, this play is quickly gathering rave reviews on the theatre circuit and has been invited to The Assembly Rooms for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August - one of the top four venues for the festival. Love all round for Donal then! Definitely our favorite theatre pick from this season, mark this one in the diary.
Love All plays at The Source on Saturday, May 26th - tickets are priced at E18 (concession E16).
