Rossport Photos and Play at Eden Quay Theatre


WILLIAM HEDERMAN chats to Noel McGuinness about his exhibition of photographs of Rossport which is on show at the Eden Quay Theatre in support of DONAL O’KELLY’s play “Fionnuala”.

Fionnuala is about the Corrib Gas fiasco foisted on a small rural community in County Mayo. Ambrose Keogh works for Shell. When the Tunnel Boring Machine he named Fionnuala sinks into the bog in Erris Co. Mayo, he is magically confronted by Fionnuala of the Children of Lir. Fionnuala puts a geas on him – he’s bound to tell the truth – about Shell. That brings to light some stark truths that Shell management would prefer wasn’t in the public arena. And it brings Ambrose back to his old primary school desk-mate, now an anti-Shell campaigner.
