    Shakespeare’s comedy ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ tells a tale of crossed wires, love denied, infidelity, deception and gossip in a small Sicilian port town.

    The Colleen Bawn Trials

    In the autumn of 1819, the remains of Ellen Hanley were found at Kilrush. The victim, now known to story, drama and opera as the Colleen Bawn, was not quite sixteen years of age and only recently married. Her husband subsequently went on trial for her murder.

    A new play presents a contemporary exploration of this quintessential Limerick story.

    ‘The Colleen Bawn Trials – the true story of Ellen Hanley’ is directed by Joan Sheehy, who talks to Sean from the Limerick studio.
