We thank Kathleen Moylan of Castlemagner for the following very comprehensive Castlemagner Christmas Diary 2018. (S.R.)
Maggie Polpin is a widowed mother of four living in rural Ireland, now sole owner of the Polpin family shop and farm since the death of her husband.
She is a complex figure, far from the clichés of Irish femininity which
preceded her. This is a hard-bitten, uncompromising woman who puts her
personal security above all other concerns. She rejects the place which
cultural precedent has laid out for her and chooses to drive all of her
children away rather than nurture them like a mother can by trying to force them to do things that will benefit Maggie.
This production is a Castlemagner Sinsir Club (Senior Citizens) fundraiser
