Liverpool Irish Festival

Obscured View

A one-woman, one-act play about how a love affair for football began when our narrator saw the Republic of Ireland qualify for their first World Cup in 1990.

Watch as the memories of travelling to see Ireland play their second World Cup final (1994) in the USA, before moving to witnessing Roy Keane’s ejection from World Cup 2002. Remember how the horrors of Hillsborough impacted on the people of Dublin as well as Liverpool, and consider how sexism and racism flag up the parochial, narrow-mindedness of some fans towards others. The finale is a whistle stop tour of Liverpool’s memorable night in Istanbul, whilst the play - as a whole - reflects the ties between Liverpool and Ireland via their shared love of football.

Written and performed by local writer, actor and Irish-Scouser Geraldine Moloney Judge.
