Deepest sympathy was also extended to Catherine Grogan and family on the death of her father Sean Nolan, Rathcoole, Co Dublin.

An easy way to drama

Ballycogley Players are preparing Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors in a full-length adaptation by Fintan Murphy for their Spring production, and they will be taking it on the Festival Circuit in February and March. This adaptation makes the language readily understandable by modern audiences, while retaining the poetry, both witty and lyrical, of Shakespeare. It is almost slap-stick comedy, and the players are having great fun working on it. There are some small crowd scenes, with walk-on parts available. This would be a great opportunity for people to gain experience of drama, without the hardship of learning lines. Rehearsals are in Tomhaggard on Tuesday evenings at 8.00 pm. All welcome, or ring 087 6812690 for further information.
