Event description

Description

It’s 2013 and the Irish tourist board has just set up an initiative called ‘The Gathering’ where the Irish diaspora are being invited back home to Ireland. Chip Hennessey, a successful textile owner from America is about to arrive in the village of Ballynahum in the county of Galway. His great grandfather John Joe Hennessey was born in Ballynahum. He immigrated to America in the late 19th century and became a legendary bare knuckle boxer. Mike Power, the local genealogist, leads the welcoming party. Mike is hoping that he can “encourage” Chip to invest in the village which could lead to mass tourism for the area. Mike thinks the best way to do that is to coach the locals to play up to the Irish stereotype for their American visitor. One punter has already gotten into the spirit of things a bit too much even before chip a rrives. When Chip does arrive, he only has eyes for one particular person. Her name is Reenie; a local bar woman who has the voice of an angel. The entire village seems to be happy about Chip’s arrival except one person, Bimbo O’Shea. He is a visually impaired man with a tongue sharper than a butcher’s knife. He seems to detest all outsiders ever since he was a boy. When he finds out the true identity of Chip Hennessey and his intentions for his daughter Reenie, all-out war is declared.
