light opera's john knifed to death in turkey

WEXFORD LIGHT OPERA SOCIETY members have been left devastated after one the group's greatest ever directors was murdered while on holiday in Turkey on Friday morning.

Award-winning musical theatre director John Donnelly has been directing light opera in Wexford since the early 1990s and the society won three all Ireland best shows under his direction.

Mr Donnelly was found dead from a stab wound to his back at an apartment in Bodrum on Friday. Two men were seen leaving the building and a bloodied knife was found outside.
