For a lunchtime with a difference, during April we had "Angels" hit the boards - written by Pauline McLynn (best known as Mrs Doyle in Father Ted), "Angels" is a dark comedy about a gang of teenagers who meet in a graveyard watched over by a trio of unusual angel statues ...

Also runnining was the Drama Club's performance night. Topping the bill was "Mr Burns" by Senior Drama Club, based on Simpsons stories told by survivors of a nuclear disaster. The show was staged in Halla Phadraig with the work of the Junior Drama Clubs on stage first, followed by "Mr Burns" at 7:45.
