The Murder of Wolfe Tone
Kilkenny City, Co. Kilkenny
10 February 2023
Historical Entertainer Paddy Cullivan brings you the incredible story of the mysterious death of Theobald Wolfe Tone, the founding father of Irish Republicanism.

An audio-visual spectacular featuring hundreds of images, shocking new research and incredible songs, Paddy dares to unravel the secrets and lies around what happened that fateful week in the Provost’s Prison in November 1798.

Was Wolfe Tone’s real father the Chief Justice of Ireland – the man who tried to save him twice? Was his trial illegal – and had he a real chance of reprieve? If he lived for 8 days after his ‘suicide’ attempt, why was no-one allowed to visit him? Were his last letters and statements forgeries and lies? Why is there such reticence from certain quarters to find out the truth?

‘The Murder of Wolfe Tone’ is a fascinating rollercoaster ride that will change your perceptions of Irish history forever.
