Tarry Flynn

Set in Cavan in the 1930s, Tarry Flynn tells the story of Tarry, a farmer poet, and his quest for big fields, young women and the meaning of life.

Tarry Flynn

Conall Morrison’s adaptation of Patrick Kavanagh’s semi-autobiographical novel, first produced at The Abbey Theatre in 1997, introduces music, choreography and an energetic theatricality to Kavanagh’s compelling story of the coming of age of a young poet.
