The Mincéir Manifesto

By Mairtín Mac an Bhaird

Nothing brings a family together on a shared march of mourning like the loss of one of their elders, and nothing reminds them of where they came from, quite like the wagons that brought them there.

Mincéir is the Shelta word for Traveller. The Mincéir Manifesto is the story of one family in the west of Ireland and the return home of a son who is alienated from their traditions after years of deliberate absence.

On the day of an Irish wake, family stories resurface that have lain dormant for years.

.For ages 16+

The topic of death is explored throughout.
