Poppy's Parting Performance:


A final standing ovation for the final night, what a way to finish this year's run.!! Everybody was in top form and with another great audience in attendance, everything ran smoothly. After so many months of rehearsing it is very rewarding to stage a successful production which was enjoyed by so many. Lots of compliments were received which was a testament to all the hard work by cast and producer. Needless to say the cast and crew are supported by an excellent committee and group of volunteers. Those who donated prizes for the Raffle were absolutely fabulous. They gave us wonderful prizes and so many that we had plenty to cover the extra night.

Sincere thanks to all concerned, go mbeirimíd beo ag an ám seo arís.
