‘Echoes of Ireland’ by McCourt Brothers on Stage Saturday

By Beacon Staff

Frank and Malachy McCourt have already enjoyed considerable writing successes.

Frank McCourt is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “Angela’s Ashes,” a 1996 memoir about the family’s upbringing in New York City and Limerick, Ireland and the hardships they experienced. Malachy is an actor, politician and writer, whose own memoir, “A Monk Swimming,” was also a best seller.

The brothers’ latest project is “Echoes of Ireland,” a musical that includes a series of recollections told by a pair of young immigrants, coupled with Irish music and dance. The play comes to Whitefish Middle School Auditorium Saturday, May 16 at 7:30 p.m. Call 406-862-5371 for tickets or more information.
