This riveting one-hour show will weave distinct strands: film, dialogue, live music and images to allow the audience to experience a four-year artistic response by Cormac Breatnach arising out of a single traumatic event which affected him from the age of 13 into his adulthood.
Breatnach’s brother – Osgur was one of three men wrongfully arrested, tortured and forced to incriminate himself for a crime he did not commit.
The Sallins Mail Train Robbery Case in 1978 was the longest running trial in the history of the State.
Cormac Breatnach will provide whistles and voice, Daire Bracken will be on fiddle and loops and Martin Toruish on accordian.
