And while we live, we must tell the truth and......


On the morning of January 28th 1921 at Godfrey's Cross near Dripsey in County Cork, the 6th Battalion No.1 Brigade of Irish Volunteers lay in wait for a convoy of British Auxiliaries travelling from Macroom. However, they themselves were ambushed by the Crown's Manchester Regiment coming from Ballincollig. They had been betrayed, but by whom?

Set during the Irish War of Independence, Shame the Devil the musical, written by Alan Kiely and Kevin Connolly tells the dramatic story of the failed Dripsey ambush, its aftermath and of the fortunes of those caught up in the troubles of the time.
