Cavan - Kingscourt

Dún a Rí Forest Park



Sparrowhawk  is a new play by John McManus commissioned by Cavan County Council Arts Office under the Creative Ireland Funding Stream and presented by Townhall Cavan in Dun A Ri Forest Park, Kingscourt.

Three men meet in a Cavan forest and all are in a state of despair: Benny because his beloved Mayo have lost yet another All Ireland final; Cian because his best friend is missing and presumed dead; Mattie because he has discovered the reason why there are no old people in Dublin.

A darkly funny and tragic tale.

“Amazing what can flare up upon a quiet morning in the middle of nowhere…”


The creative writing and script development of Sparrowhawk is funded by Creative Ireland and Cavan County Council through Creative Cavan 2021.


The performance of Sparrowhawk live at Dun a Rí Forest Park for Culture Night 2021 is with thanks to the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media Local Live Performance Programming Scheme.
