`Don't give lip to members of the Garda Síochána'

16 October 1997

Dearlraíonn sé gur áit chontúirteach é Copperface Jack's, club oíce i Sráid Fhearchair, Baile Atha Cliath. Bhíodh Dermot O'Dhea as Déide Bayview, Cill Iníon Léinín, ag obair ansin anuraidh mar fhear dorais. Ar 20 Samhain chaith sé duine amach as an gclub. Is chuige sin a bhíonn fir dhoirse ann. Ní dhearna mac Uí Dhea dhá leath dá chicheall leis. Chiceáil sé an fear bocht ó bhonn go baithis. Tharraing sé amach as an áitreabh é agus an ainniseoir beagnach gan aithne gan urlabhra. Caitheadh an duine ar an talamh agus buaileadh a chloigeann de na céimeanna. Free article

Cinema: An enjoyable con

16 October 1997

Theatre: Sean Penn's Irish play distorts reality

16 October 1997

Sean Penn recently produced a play in Los Angeles which is set in Belfast. Cast in the leading roles are his parents, actors Eileen Ryan and Leo Penn. The play `Remembrance', written by Irish playwright Graham Reid sadly would have been best forgotten. But to write a damning review of this production in this context serves little purpose.
