Ranelagh arts in conjunction with Dublin City Council is excited to present Beezie:

Beezie is the true story of a woman from Sligo who decided to live her life alone on an Island with just her beasts for comfort and the odd visitor who ventured to row over to her, including W B Yeats. It is at times charming, funny and poignant but above all it is a mesmerising piece of live theatre.

Beezie’ is written and performed by Sheila Flitton, who played Mrs McCormack/the Banshee in the Banshees of Inisherin.

Beezie Gallagher was, for over sixty years, the sole resident of an island on Lough Gill, County Sligo. Born in the 1872 and orphaned in her teens, Beezie’s wisdom, robust humour and fierce independence gained her a reputation as healer, wise woman and witch.
