The Lonesome West is by contemporary playwright Martin McDonagh and is the third in the trilogy which also includes the much-featured Beauty Queen of Lenane and A Skull in Connemara. 


All three plays depict the shocking and violent goings-on in the non fictitious Western village of Lenane.

The Lonesome West features the constantly arguing brothers Coleman and Valene whose father has just died in a shotgun "accident." Only Father Welsh, the alcoholic parish priest, attempts to fix their relationship, but his advice mostly goes unheard.

You are encouraged to try this production by Ardagh Drama Group, Limerick at Lislea Drama Festival tonight at 8.00.
