Other Information In 1970 the Southern Theatre group was renamed Theatre of the South.  Theatre of the South specialised in bringing modern Irish shows to audiences in the south of the country. In June the company embarked on a tour to the United States, at the invitation of the O'Growney branch of the Gaelic League in San Francisco. While on tour, Theatre of the South presented four modern Irish shows to American audiences. After the tour, the group returned for their summer season at the Cork Opera House.
