Máire Nic Shiubhlaigh as Queen Gormleith in Kincora by Lady Gregory. The play tells the tale of Brian Boru, King of Ireland's fight to unite a country fraught with political strife, quarrels and hatred. Gormleith is central to the discord as she manipulates the majority of the central characters using all her wiles. The play ends with Brian Boru and his son Murrough before the Battle of Clontarf, contemplating their fate as they refuse to turn their backs on their duty to Ireland. The premiere took place on 23rd March 1905 in scenery and costumes by Robert Gregory, son of Lady Gregory.
