For Better For Worse

Kilbrin GAA drama group are putting the final touches to their upcoming showings on this Thursday April 5th, Friday 6th, Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th. A huge amount of work has gone into the preparation of this hilarious comedy. The highly talented cast of Angela O Flynn, Karen O Reilly, Helen Byrne, Una Cremin, Celine Hayes, Ronan O Sullivan, Edwin Casey, Timmy Lynch and Vinny Hayes have put sweat and blood into this comedy. It is a follow up the our last comedy 'The Two Loves of Gabriel Foley'. Farmer Gabriel Foley is newly married. His wife, Chrissie is stressed and unhappy as things are not going well for the couple in and out of the bedroom. Matters aren’t helped by the caustic comments of Gabriel’s mother, Aggie, who is living with them, and by the arrival of glamorous Miriam Maguire, the upmarket daughter of an old friend of Aggie’s. Then Gabriel invites his widowed Aunt Lucy to stay for a few days…... Disaster for poor Gabriel with a capital D. It's a comedy not to be missed.
