    Synopsis: 

    On a magical night in Dublin airport. Eoin waits with a headful of memories. The hopes and dreams of an Irish emigrant trying to make sense of his journey home.

    Dermot Bolger's The Parting Glass is an hilarious, uplifting and life affirming show set on the night Thierry Henry's left hand dashed Ireland's World Cup dreams. It is about the return of a man to the land of his youth, to witness the Celtic Tiger turn to ashes, to say goodbye to his past and find hope in his future.

    The Parting Glass is a universal story of friendship, family and fatherhood. Losing was never this much fun.
