Sean Moffatt Radio Plays

Sean Moffatt has written for stage, television and radio. He has lectured in Ireland and Europe and is the editor of Leaving Certificate / A level texts of two of Sean O'Casey's plays.

He is an instructor at the Irish Writers' Centre in Parnell Square, Dublin. He has written for "Fair City" for many years. In case you've not heard of it, this is Ireland's favourite TV soap opera, a gritty controversial drama set in a fictional suburb of Dublin. (Recent stories have covered drug abuse, euthanasia, homosexuality, rape and AIDS) He also works for a film company producing films contemporary in setting with strong dramatic human stories.

He is currently Chairman of the Irish Playwrights and Screenwriters' Guild.

The Sean Moffatt radio plays which I've managed to trace are listed below.

If there are others which have been broadcast on RTE, I would be grateful to receive details.
