Keane, John B (1928 - 2002)
Irish writer John B Keane during the recording of RTÉ Television's 'Donncha from Adare Manor' in Adare Manor, County Limerick, in March 1980. He is wearing a sprig of shamrock in his lapel. This was a special programme broadcast on St Patrick's Night 1980; it differed from the later series 'Donncha at Adare' which was transmitted in 1981. The RTÉ Guide previewed this edition of the show on 14 March 1980.
John B Keane's best-known plays include 'Sive' (1959), Sharon's Grave (1960), 'The Field' (1965) and 'Big Maggie' (1969).
