  • Synopsis

    Set in a hotel in the Gaeltacht: we hear that a bank has been robbed in Limerick and that the criminals have escaped. Two young men, Brian and Claude, staying in the hotel and a nosey neighbour-cum-detective, Micilín, believes them to be the robbers. The owner's daughters fall in love with the young men. As the play develops all evidence points to Brian and Claude being guilty.
