As part of this weekend’s Galway Early Music Festival, Moonfish Theatre Company are presenting a new stage version of the famous old Irish saga, Mad Sweeney/Buile Shuibhne. The story relates how a cleric puts a curse of madness on the Ulster king Sweeney who, there after, spends his days roaming, bird-witted, through the treetops of Ireland, shunning human company and enduring nakedness, hunger and loneliness. At every stop in Sweeney’s flight through Ireland, he pauses to give a poem on the location and his plight, with his descriptions of the countryside and nature, as well as his pathos, being both vivid and moving.
