There was a wonderful atmosphere at Treacy's Hotel on Thursday night as Enniscorthy Drama Group officially launched their production of 'The Beauty Queen of Leenane'. Among those in attendance was Minister Paul Kehoe who commented on the wonderful success of the group and the progress it has made in just five short years.

As well as this, MC Maria Nolan and Chairman of the group Liam Doyle were delighted to welcome Anton Treacy of Treacy's Hotel as official sponsor of the production and thanked him for his ongoing support. Jimmy Gahan, who performed the launch on the night, said he was greatly looking forward to seeing the production and had great praise for the cast of Fintan Kelly, Anne Marie Whelan, Michelle Whelan and Brendan Robinson, as well as director Tom Reddy.

The group has already received a wonderful reaction to the Martin McDonagh classic in The National Opera House and all involved are looking forward to taking it before a home crowd this Thursday, Friday and Saturday night at The Presentation Centre at 8 p.m. nightly.
