The Humours of Bandon

Tue 13 Feb 2018

From the confines of every parochial hall in Ireland, Irish dancing champions are churned out at a massive rate. But the public aren’t privy to the blood, sweat and tears that pave the way to the first place podium. On the eve of the Irish Open championship, meet Annie - a young Dubliner with a burning desire to win the title.

Winner of a Writers’ Guild of Ireland award, this is a coming-of-age story, full of heart, humour and wisdom, for anyone who had a childhood passion that threatened to overwhelm their life.

Margaret McAuliffe, writer and performer of The Humours of Bandon, talks to us about Riverdance, childhood hobbies and the competitive world of Irish Dance in our Festival Hot Seat interview.
