    RECOMMENDED BY

    David Patton:- “ Lermond’s pub scenes are to be found all across rural Ireland, and so nothing unusual in that then… Until you realise that you’ve been transported there thanks to her delicious dialogue and a cast of rogues! ”

    Robert Weibezahl: – “ This charming bit of Irish whimsy beautifully captures the singular, leg-pulling wit of the denizens of the west of Ireland and the uptight demeanor of an American abroad. ”

    John Mabey:- “ Dialect and language are so important to the world of a play, and Vivian Lermond skillfully crafts both in the world of CROWLEY’S CORNER. Whether or not you have an ear for Irish pub conversations, you’ll immediately feel connected to Dingle and immersed in the community. When an unexpected outsider collides with the locals, there’s plenty of comedy and self-discovery in this play to entertain as well as inspire. And all with an Irish heart. ”
