'FIELD OF ECHOES' WORLD PREMIERE!

Thursday June 1st 2017 6.30pm

Irish American Family the Gallaghers are on their summer holiday ?to their ancestral home the Island of Ireland. Although the Gallagher children Bernard and Brendan are less impressed with Ireland’s roving hills and endless supply of drizzling rain and more concerned with the lack of modern New York conveniences that they are used to.

That is until the family meet Paddy Joe McNamara, a farmer that soon makes the young Gallagher’s see the seemingly empty green fields surrounding them in a whole new light and it’s not always about what’s in front of you that counts! ?

This is Jane Mc Carter’s fourth children’s play performed by ‘Emerald Footprints’ Drama group that highlights, the importance of our heritage, the wonder of timeless legends & the gift that lies within the ‘passing down’ of these cultural gemstones from generation to generation.
