A standing ovation on a Monday night at the Simon Ryan Theatre in Tipperary was a wonderful omen for Tom Crean actor Aidan Dooley as he sets out on another tour of Ireland with another epic story – O’Sullivan Beara.

Described as the last Gaelic Chieftain O’Suilleabháin Beara was a survivor of the misadventure of the Battle of Kinsale and rather than focus on the Great O’Neill or Red Hugh O’Donnell as Ouroboros Theatre did in 2005 with Making History, Dooley focuses on the magnificent or foolhardy winter march of his clan, his tribe from the Beara Peninsula to the O’Rourke Kingdom of Breffni in Cavan/Leitrim.
