As part of our Summer season of Drama on Newstalk,  producer Brian Gallagher’s  latest work is a gripping radio drama about the relationship between a young Irish boy, Kevin Riordan, and an elderly English lock keeper, John Bennett, in late-Fifties Ireland.

Despite its idyllic summer setting, trouble is coming with the proposed closure of the local canal, and when Kevin discovers that Mr Bennett - a conscientious objector - had fled to Ireland to escape conscription in the Great War, both characters are faced with difficult moral dilemmas.

THE LAST SUMMER  will air on Newstalk on Monday May 2nd at 11.30am.

CREDITS: Starring Michael James Ford, Marion O’Dwyer and Eoin Brady, THE LAST SUMMER  was written and produced by Brian Gallagher.   The programme was funded by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland with the Television License Fee.

LISTEN LIVE ONLINE: THE LAST SUMMER  can also be listened to online at: www.newstalk.com

PODCAST: Podcast available at: www.newstalk.com/documentaryonnewstalk after the broadcast.
