Event description

Description

In a moment the friars lay about the altar steps, their white habits stained with blood. 'Set fire to the house!' cried Sir Frederick Hamilton.

A vengeful Sidhe stalks Hamilton's men through forest and valley and through river after they massacre the White Friars of Sligo Abbey.

Supported by Creative Ireland and Sligo County Council, The Rabbit's Riot Theatre Company and students of IT Sligo present WB Yeats short story The Curse of the Fires and of the Shadows (adapted for stage by Treasa Nealon) which is based on the true story of Sir Frederick Hamilton's burning of Sligo Abbey in 1642.
