Last year's Open winners were Kilmeen Drama Group with Enda Walsh's Disco Pigs while the Confined winners were Corofin Dramatic Society with David Tristram's What's for Pudding? Kilmeen later went on to win the main award at the full-length All-Irelands in Athlone and so are simultaneous holders of both the One-Act and full-length All-Ireland titles.

West Waterford Drama Festival 2020 – Message from Festival Director Clodagh Walsh


If using Sat Nav, be careful when inputting. There are at least three Ballyduffs in County Waterford. In particular, there is a village called Ballyduff about five miles from Waterford City. This is not us! Coordinates 52° 08' 51" N, 8° 03' 06" W will get you pretty near the correct Ballyduff! more
