The Murder of Wolfe Tone comes to Galway's Town Hall Theatre on Thursday, February 2. Fittingly, it is the 225th anniversary of the 1798 rebellion and Wolfe Tone's death.
Paddy Cullivan delivers an incredible story surrounding the mysterious death of Theobald Wolfe Tone, the founding father of Irish Republicanism. An audio-visual spectacular featuring hundreds of images, shocking new research and incredible songs, Paddy dares to unravel the secrets and lies around what happened that fateful week in the Provost’s Prison, November 1798.
Was Wolfe Tone’s real father the Chief Justice of Ireland - the man who tried to save him twice? Was his trial illegal - and had he a real chance of reprieve? If he lived for eight days after his ‘suicide’ attempt, why was no-one allowed to visit him? Were his last letters and statements forgeries and lies? Did his surgeon later admit it was murder? And where’s the infamous ‘razor’? Why is there such reticence from certain quarters - to this day - to find out the truth?
With many twists and turns, ‘The Murder of Wolfe Tone’ is a fascinating rollercoaster ride that will change your perceptions of Irish history forever.
