Death of Great Friend to Yeats Society Sligo


Feb 11, 2019


We are saddened to hear of the death yesterday of playwright, author and artist Sam McCready. Many students of the Yeats International Summer School will recall with fondness his great energy and enthusiasm as he encouraged and supported them to enjoy and experience drama and the intensity of acting. With his wife Joan, they were stalwarts of the school and generous with their time and their love of Yeats, the stage and the great challenges offered by great drama.

On behalf of all the students and of Yeats Society Sligo, we extend our deep condolences to the McCready family. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam.
