Audiences enjoyed eight very different plays over three nights in this celebration of the joy of amateur production!
Local teams and drama groups, hailing from any part of Ireland, each presented a one -act play and received a short public adjudication on their performance.
The Festival is affiliated to both the Association of Ulster Drama Festivals and the Amateur Drama Council of Ireland, so competing groups were given the opportunity to qualify for both Ulster and All-Ireland Finals.
