Help! My baby grand-daughter is Gerry Adams

Bafta-winning actor Stephen Rea takes on the role of a paranoid loyalist who thinks his newborn grand-daughter is Gerry Adams in the Abbey Theatre's new production 'Cyprus Avenue'.
The play takes its title from a neighbourhood in east Belfast - which also inspired Van Morrison's 1968 single of that name.
Directed by Vicky Featherstone, the black comedy is a co-production with London's Royal Court Theatre and stars Chris Corrigan.
Abbey director Fiach MacConghail said he was proud to present a new play "that sheds a light on the internal challenges facing the loyalist community today".
The play will run until March 19.
