During the American-Mexican War (1846-48) some 3000 immigrant soldiers deserted the US Army with more than 500 of these – mainly Irish – joining the Mexican side where, led by John Riley from Galway, they fought as The San Patricio Battalion.

Mexicans still hold the brave Irish soldiers in high esteem. Performed by Tallaght actor/playwright Stephen Jones, the play tells the story from the point of view of Thomas O’Byrne, who finds himself caught up in the war while trying to escape arrest!

The play’s title is taken from a quote attributed to the Mexican leader, General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna
“With a hundred more like these men of Riley’s, I could have won this war!”

Presented by Awake & Sing Productions
Written by Larry O’Loughlin
Adapted and Performed by Stephen Jones

“This moving testament to these forgotten heroes” -The Sunday Times
