Yeats wrote a series of plays using material from the Ulster Cycle, although not from the Táin Bó Cúailnge proper. On Bailie's Stran was first performed on 27 December, 1904, Dublin; The Green Helmet was first performed on February 1910, Dublin; Deirdre was first performed on 24 November, 1906; At the Hawks Well was first performed on April 1, 1916, London; The Only Jealousy of Emer was first performed in Amsterdam, 1922; and The Death of Cuchulain was produced after Yeat's death in Dublin in December, 1949.
