Coinciding with the Flann O’Brien centenary, Drama On One begins its month long archive series with a re-broadcast of Thirst by Myles Na gCopaleen. Confronted with a sergeant’s visit after a very long night of after-hours serving, publican Ignatius Cornelius Coolahan tells a long story of military service in the desert, hoping he can tap into his accuser’s sense of thirst.
