Tir na nÓg – the island of eternal youth. Niamh, Chinn Óir, Niamh of the Golden Hair, the beautiful daughter of Manannán Mac Lir, the King of the Sea, meets Óisin, the son of Fionn Mac Cumhaill, A legend suddenly comes to life with the discovery of an ancient cave by the Still Rock on the Great Saltee Island just off the coast of Kilmore Quay. From Monday to Thursday, children can dedicate all their time and energy, mornings or afternoons, to discovering the truth about Niamh Chinn Óir – painting, making props and costumes, building a parade float, doing battle, creating songs and performing an epic rescue. Be prepared to give everything.
Red Moon Theatre is resident Theatre-in-Education Company at Wexford Arts Centre working with and supporting the Festival since 1985.
