The Great Hunger at Irish Famine Summer School

Update on The Great Hunger tour .

Despite a relatively serious road accident, Peter performed The Great Hunger on crutches in Mullingar and Strabane.

Fri 23rd Jan Naas
Sat 24th Jan Dundalk

The great Hunger in Belfast

Had a wonderful night in Belfast. Show was booked out and got a great response from the audience –

with many giving a standing ovation.  The Q&A session afterwards was lively and interesting.

Not many know PK worked for a time in Belfast. Was of special significance to myself, as i worked there

also back in the late 1970’s !
