Local interest in the All-Irelands will certainly be alive and strong with Ballyduff Drama Group performing Harold Pinter's "One for the Road" sweeping through to the finals with another brace of victories over the weekend. With four wins and a second, they, along with Lurig Drama Group from Cushendall (David Mamet's "The Duck Variations") and Rasper Players from Wexford (Sarah Kane's "4.48 Psychosis") are home and dry. There are a number of groups, however, who can grab the three final qualification spots and these will come from Prosperous, Athlone, Haulbowline, Insight, Shannonside, Bradán and On Q and will be determined by the results of the four remaining festivals. For these groups, it is still all to play for.

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
