A successful three-night run of short plays in a Killarney hotel has highlighted the need for a permanent theatre in the town.

Last week the Dochas Drama Group staged a three night short play run in the Killarney Avenue Hotel.

All three plays were written, produced and performed by members of the group.

Close on two hundred people attended the plays in the ballroom of the Killarney Avenue.

While the majority of the audience were local, the performances were also attended by visitors.

“The attendance reflects the appetite for drama in the Killarney area. Feedback from non-locals has been that they are incredulous that there is no theatre in the town. Maybe as locals we have just got used to it,” said Brian Bowler, who is an actor and director with the amateur group.

There are plans to include a new theatre in the redevelopment of the Áras Phádraig on Lewis Road but that is many years away.

The pupils and staff of Two Mile Community National School were delighted to welcome Mr Norio Maruyama,  the Japanese Ambassador to Ireland on Tuesday.

The Ambassador was at the school to promote the teaching of the Japanese language and culture through the ‘Say Yes to Languages’ programme.

“The pupils in Two Mile were very interested to listen to stories about Japan and to learn about the links between our two countries,” said school principal Catherine Barry.
“As a multi-denominational school, we are very open to different languages and cultures and we look forward to working with the Japanese embassy from next September.”
Two Mile Community National School is the only multi-denominational school in the Killarney school district.
