The wrongful conviction and subsequent hanging of innocent men for murder in the 1880s and the mystery disappearance of a local postman on Christmas Day almost one hundred years ago are among the many real life tragedies which will be under the spotlight at the, bi-lingual Murder Mystery weekend planned for Dungarvan, Co Waterford, on November 16 and 17.
Locals and visitors with an interest in history, the law, language, tall tales, mystery and mayhem, will be enthralled throughout the two-day, free programme of Irish language and bi-lingual events. It’s all organised by the Irish Office at Waterford City and County Council as part of the ongoing Bliain na Gaeilge and Creative Ireland celebrations.
There will be free children’s storytelling and mask-making, big screen drama, walks, talks, storytelling, singing and more, Irish Officer, Máire Seó Breathnach, revealed. And you don’t have to be a native or a fluent Irish speaker to join in. Many of the big screen events will be subtitled and several events will be conducted in both Irish and English, she explained:
“It’s the first time we’ve staged a Murder Mysteries weekend and we feel that it’s an appropriate time of the year to hold such an event. We have gone all out to provide something for everyone – be they Irish speakers, those with little or no Irish, someone interested in history, folklore, music and song, locals or visitors. There is a wide range of events and activities to suit different age groups and interests.”
