There was a full house at Clontarf’s Viking Theatre on Monday (4 February) when Peter Sheridan presented his latest solo show in aid of St Vincent de Paul (SVP).

Bohemian FC organised the fundraiser in association with the Viking Theatre. After the performance, a cheque for €650 was presented to SVP Finglas.

Sheridan’s show, Break A Leg, is based on his second memoir, recently published under the same title.

The performance weaves together stories from Sheridan’s earliest days in amateur drama under his father’s guidance to his pioneering projects of the 1980s in community drama in Dublin’s inner city. The run continues at the Viking Theatre until Saturday (9 February).


Accepting the cheque on behalf of SVP, Jimmy Scurry told the audience that he too was brought up in Sherriff Street and could confirm that the people living in the flats, like his own family, regarded the people in the houses, like the Sheridan family, as “snobs”!

In recognition of their contribution to the event, Bohemian PRO Tommy Hynes presented Laura Dowdall and Andy Murray of the Viking Theatre and Peter Sheridan with honorary membership of Bohemian FC.
