For Club and County - The Making of a Sporting Hero

JOIN members of Moneymore GAC at their next fundraiser on Sunday 4th November as Moth Productions present For Club and County. This hilarious new play has been written and directed by Seamus O’Rourke and is produced in association with The GAA Social Initiative and the Alcohol and Substance Abuse Prevention (ASAP) programme and is sponsored by Calor.

For Club and County follows the success of Seamus O’Rourke’s Victor’s Dung in the Burnavon. Will Govan of Moth Productions told the Tyrone Times: “I am very excited about the production, the cast and crew are top class and as ever it’s great to be working with Seamus,”

“GAA Social Initiative clubs like Moneymore GAC coming together to enjoy theatre that represents our games proved very popular last season and I’m sure it will again with Moth Production’s new tour which is taking in Cookstown on its travels,” added GAA Community and Health Promotion Manager, Colin Regan. “For Club and County will also help deliver the positive message of the ASAP programme to clubs around the country and I wish it every success in this endeavour.”

In this comedy of two halves, there are just two weeks to go before the county final and Matt “the Maestro”, manager of Tanaree’s senior football side, is determined to end the clubs 23-year run of bad form. Their hopes are dashed as their dual football and hurling star Ritchie Brown busts his knee dipping sheep. But has Richie’s girlfriend, the wily Jenny, found the answer in Arthur Polanski, who just happens to be the spit of Ritchie Brown? Just because he’s not a member of the country, let alone the club, doesn’t mean he can’t play in the final. And he doesn’t have to speak English; he just has to talk GAA!

For Club and County: The Making of a Sporting Hero will play in the Burnavon on Sunday 4th November at 8pm. Tickets are £12.50. There are limited tickets remaining from the Burnavon Box Office on 028 8676 9949, online at www.burnavon.com and from Moneymore GAC.
