Dublin-based Killarney Actor Donal Courtney’s one-man show tells the true story of the struggles encountered by Irish priest Monsignor Hugh O’ Flaherty and his colleagues in Rome during the Second World War. The story follows O’Flaherty’s torment as he has to act in defence of those suffering under the tyranny of the Fascists. The play also reflects on his upbringing and education in Killarney and how joining the priesthood protected him from involvement in The War of Independence. Told with humour and sensitivity, ‘God Has No Country’ brings the heroic deeds and achievements of this extraordinary man to a wider audience.
Presented as part of the Bealtaine Festival.
