The play tells the story of Gabriel Foley, a middle-aged bachelor farmer, who has been unlucky in love and lives with his mother. In a last-ditch effort to find love, and show his mother that he is perfectly capable of finding a woman, he joins a ‘town’ drama group. Meanwhile his housekeeper has been in love with him for years but he is too blind to notice. Will Gabriel find love in his new drama group or see what has been in front of him all along before it is too late? You will have to wait and see!

ON Sunday April 7th at 10:00am we’ll be starting our Kilflynn cleanup in the village as part of the KWD Recycling County clean-up day. It is fantastic to give a good “spring-clean” to our beautiful village and surrounding area in preparation for the busy summer months.
The more people that turn up, the easier the job is for everyone. We pass through our village on a daily basis, between work, school runs, walking, running, etc! Let’s now show Kilflynn some TLC by coming out and cleaning it up.
As always KCT greatly appreciates your support. We will be providing bags, some gloves, and some pickers.
