JOHN BOYLE O’Reilly was one of the most fascinating individuals to emerge from 19th century Ireland, and he is the subject of a show by the great Seán Tyrrell.

Seán will perform A Message Of Peace in The Crane Bar, Sea Road, on Wednesday June 19 at 9pm as part of the Galway Sessions 2013 festival.

Through song and story, Seán will paint a vivid picture of John Boyle O’Reilly’s journey from his boyhood in Dowth, County Meath, to his enlistment as a Fenian, his imprisonment and escape from the penal colony in Fremantle, Australia, to his settling in Boston, where he became an important leader of Irish-America through his journalism and activism. The show will also include works by Oscar Wilde and John Lennon.

Tickets are €10 and are available from The Crane on 091 - 587419 or see www.thecranebar.com See also www.seantyrrell.com
