Tríona Ní Dhuibhir: Jezebel

There’s a jezebel in the stables and she’s singing devilish tunes. Songstress Tríona Ní Dhuibhir has created a theatrical alter ego with a twinkle in her eye and a back catalogue of country-tinged classics on the subjects of love, death, gambling and desire. The show is inspired by Castletown’s sometimes risqué past: From Katherine Conolly, the original lady of Castletown (who hosted gambling, carriage races and bevvies of rakish young men) to the Devil himself who (the story goes) paid a visit here one dark night.  This musical performance explores the legend of Jezebel, historically a queen and peacemaker – later demonised as the wanton woman, but in folktales of America’s deep South – Jezebel is the Devil’s wife.
