Southern Star.  


It is 1860, and the trade routes between Cork and Italy are worked hard by a tall ship called the Bulman. One night, off the French coast, she hits a storm of epic proportions. Death and redemption battle through the night, but when the dawn comes and the fog lifts things will never be the same…

After a sell-out success at last year’s Kinsale Arts Week, The Bulman is now available for tour. Based on actual records of the Cork Harbour authorities, The Bulman is part maritime yarn, part ghost story, and tells how the infamous Bulman Rock got its name.

The piece is written by Kinsale writer Donal Hayes and performed by David Peare – co-host of the renowned Kinsale Ghost Tour.

(The Bulman was originally developed with the support of Kinsale Arts Festival).
