Claregalway’s renowned drama group Compántas Lir are this week preparing for a new season of drama which they hope will bring them back to the All-Ireland finals which they have graced on many an occasion over the past decade and a half. Since 1983, the group have been Galway’s standard bearers in amateur drama and have made the name Claregalway synonomous with excellence in drama. However, the group, conscious of the expansion of the parish are anxious to invite new members into the group. No previous experience is necessary, but undoubtedly anybody with specific skills will be extra welcome. Anybody who would like to become part of the group or who would like more information on it should contact chairman Seamus McNulty at (091) 708862. The first event of the year will be the one-act double-bill which forms part of the Supper Theatre night on October 16–18th and the tickets for this sell-out event will become available inside the next fortnight.
