Rave reviews in (and from) Ireland

Posted on June 5, 2019 by Sonoma Valley Sun

Peadar Dalton and Bob Smith take their act on the road, all the way to Ireland, for a one-night performance in the world famous Leo’s Pub and local theatre owned by the family of musicians, namely Enya and Moya Brennan and the Clannad Band.  The play, Tremble, written by author Kerric Harvey and directed by Todd Evans, was performed three nights in March in Murphys Irish Pub.

Along with their wives, Margarita Ramirez-Dalton and Karen Smith, who handled the staging and the sound effects, the actors combined a vacation with a requested performance of the Irish favorite. They were hosted for the stay by Dermot Coll, owner of Murphys, in his home in Bunbeg, Gweedore Parish, Donegal, in the northwestern portion of Ireland.

The area, reports Margarita, “is dotted with some of the most pristine coastline and mountains. There are many surrounding islands, some still inhabited and reachable by ferry.”

“Dermot’s family and friends could not have been more hospitable and gracious,” she continued. “We all were delighted to perform the play in this world famous Leo’s Pub, full of locals and tourists. You could hear a pin drop with the attention the audience gave us.”
The Pub is owned by the family of Moya and Enya, world-renowned musicians and the band Clannad.
It was a night to remember, Margarita said, and one they hope to repeat at Murphys later in the year.
