Des Keogh, one of Ireland’s foremost actors and entertainers, is celebrating 50 years in show business this year. Marking this anniversary his hugely successful show: The Love-Hungry Farmer comes to Rossmore Theatre on Saturday June 29th.

Based on John B. Keane’s best-selling book: Letters of a Love-Hungry Farmer, and adapted for the stage by Des himself, the show has been one of the most popular shows in Ireland and abroad in the last decade and continues to find new audiences. It tells the story of John Bosco McLane, a bachelor of indeterminate age and according to his own assessment: ‘past his best’ and evidently still a virgin. McLane’s amorous adventures range from the hilarious to the pitiful. John B. Keane is the legendary author of such classics as Sive, The Field and Big Maggie
