Anyone attending the show on Friday 15 April  will also be treated to a post show poetry reading by the playwright Dermot Bolger

THE PARTING GLASS is a one-man show charting Eoin’s journey through love, friendship, family and Ireland’s turbulent economic climate.

“Thierry Henry is there to stretch out his hand for two illicit flicks of his wrist – one to stop the ball crossing the by-line, the second to tee it up for a flick across the box for Gallas to score.”

Where were you when our World Cup dreams were dashed?

Eoin was at the heart of the drama in Stade de France, Nov 18th 2009. Reunited with Mick and Shane, the three amigos on that fateful night…

After emigrating to Germany to find work during the 80’s, Eoin made a new life for himself with the help of his wife Frieda and son Dieter. Now he returns to an Ireland that has boomed and bust.

axis is proud to continue its association with one of Ireland’s best-known writers Dermot Bolger, who brought Ballymun to the professional stage with ‘From These Green Heights’ (Winner Best New Play 2004), ‘The Townlands of Brazil’, ‘Walking the Road’ & ‘The Consequences of Lightning’. THE PARTING GLASS is a standalone sequel to Bolger’s hit play ‘In High Germany’.

“It packed a huge punch and it made me cry, and that doesn’t happen often”, Fiona Looney on RTE’s ‘The View’, 5th Apr 2011
