Excerpt from My Irish Rose: A Comedy-Drama of Irish Life in Three Acts Act. I. Colum McCormack's farm yard on the outskirts of a village in County Kildare, Ireland. "St. Patrick's Day in the Morning." Act II. Same scene at Act I, a few hours later. "The Kerry Dance." Act III. Scene 1. The Library of Fitzgerald's house in Dublin, a year later. "The Last Rose of Summer." Scene 2. Same as Scene 1, four hours later. "Mavourneen." Note. - The curtain descends for a few minutes between Scenes 1 and 2 in Act III to indicate a lapse of four hours. Rose Creigan, a little Irish country lass, is the pride of her bachelor uncle Colum McCormack arid her aunt Ann Mary. Her brother, Terence Creigan, has been cashiered from the army on account of a superior officers enmity, and has gone to America. Maurice Fitzgerald, a wealthy Dublin artist, falls in love with Rose while painting her picture. He proposes marriage and is accepted. Shortly after he learns from his family lawyer, Mr. Pepperdine, that his cousin has been killed and that he is heir to the estate and a baronet. Mr. Pepperdine suggests that he break off his matrimonial entanglement, but Maurice spurns the suggestion with contempt.
