Sean Tyrrell
Sean Tyrell is an Irish national treasure who has managed to avoid well deserved worldwide acclaim due to his delight in championing the causes of forgotten poets such as Brian Merriman whose Cúirt an Mheán Oíche was written in 1780, and translated into English by Frank OConnor in 1945, whereupon The Midnight Court was subsequently banned by the Irish Censorship Board. And buried it remained until resurrected by Sean in 1992 as his hit of the Galway Arts Festival followed by 150 Irish performances thereafter, an Edinburgh Fringe production in 2008 and American tours of the production in 2012. His 2017 US tour will be of his one man show Message Of Peace on the life and times of John Boyle OReilly(1844-1890) a remarkable historical figure: a man who was an internationally renowned journalist, writer, and civil rights activist. Born in Meath, OReilly later worked in England before joining the British army. Ostensibly a proud soldier, OReilly lived a double life as a recruiter for the revolutionary Fenian Brotherhood. He was discovered and convicted, serving time in a succession of prisons from Mountjoy to Dartmoor. He was eventually transported to Western Australia from where he made a spectacular escape to the United States. It was in the US, during a time of intense economic and social turmoil, where OReillys brilliance flourished. As editor of The Pilot, a Boston newspaper, he became a powerful advocate of the rights of workers and African-Americans. He retained a strong commitment to Ireland and was an important part of the Land League and Home Rule movements, working closely with Michael Davitt. A good friend of John Devoy, OReilly played an organisational role in the famed Catalpa rescue. In tandem with his journalism, O'Reilly was one of the most famous literary figures of his day, publishing four volumes of poetry and two novels. A complex and charismatic personality, OReillys popularity transcended race, religion and nationality and, among his friends, he could count figures as diverse as Walt Whitman, Wendell Phillips, and Jeremiah ODonovan Rossa.
