Philadelphia Here I Come

By Brian Friel

Fed up with is dreary round of life in Ballybeg, with his uncommunicative father and his humiliating job at his father’s grocery shop, with his frustrated love for Katie Doogan who married a richer, more successful young man and with the total absence pf prospect and opportunity in his life at home, Gareth O Donnell has accepted his aunt’s invitation to come to Philadelphia. On the eve of his departure, despite the fantasies Gar entertains of life in America, all it would take to stop him leaving would be one word of affection from his father or Kathy, or a word of genuine understanding from his friends.

Location

If using Sat Nav, be careful when inputting. There are at least three Ballyduffs in County Waterford. In particular, there is a village called Ballyduff about five miles from Waterford City. This is not us! Coordinates 52° 08' 51" N, 8° 03' 06" W will get you pretty near the correct Ballyduff! more
