News
Wexford Drama Festival happens March 5-13. That's a whole week of live drama! Local groups have been working for months on getting their productions just right. They know that if you are giving up an evening in front of the tv it better be worth it. Tickets €12/10.
I have been meaning to give a mention to Ceoltóirí Munna for ages. What's that? Just the county's most enduring and successful get-together of young folk into their traditional Irish music and dance. Happens in Taghmon Friday evenings. Juniors 6-8, Seniors 8-10. https://www.facebook.com/ceoltoiri.munna
One of the teachers at Ceoltóirí Munna is sean nós dance expert Niamh Page. You can try your hand at that at Wexford Arts Centre, March 5. She also does a weekly class at An Tobar/Westgate Centre, Wexford.
