Radio drama brings St Patrick to life

There is much more to St Patrick than driving out snakes, and shamrocks.  This St Patrick’s Day, Life FM presents a brand new drama on the young man who became synonymous with Ireland. This 25 minute drama will play on March 17th at 8.30am and repeated on the same day at 12.30pm, 3.30pm and 10.30pm on Cork's 93.1 LifeFM.

This fast paced drama adaptation of Patrick’s own writings brings to life the joys and struggles of Ireland’s patron saint. Cutting through the myths and legends, this drama will pierce to the realities of the young man who became a slave, had a dramatic conversion to the God he spurned as a youth, and returned with the good news to the land of his captors.
The drama is written and directed by Tim Murphy, his first drama after producing many documentaries for LifeFM, including Multicultural Cork, Titanic 100 and What's It Like? - Everyday Heroes. LifeFM have a strong history in producing compelling historical programmes including Thomas Kent: The Forgotten Patriot, Across the Ocean in 18 Days and The West Cork Ten.
