Killorglin CYMS Players promise a comedy that will have you shaking in your seats and begging for more!

The group are currently in the final stages of rehearsal for their forthcoming production of Jimmy Keary’s comedy 'The Two Loves of Gabriel Foley', which they’ll take to the CYMS Community Hall from April 3 to 5, and again from April 10 to 12. Doors open at 7pm and curtain will rise at 8pm sharp.

‘The Two Loves of Gabriel Foley’ is set in Aggie Foley’s farmhouse in rural Ireland. Aggie is close to 70 and is keen that her only son, Gabriel – now past 40 – will find himself a wife.

Gabriel, who is played by Donal Piggot, is not opposed to the idea and to improve his chances, joins the nearby town’s newly established drama society - ‘The Prince of Denmark Players’.

There he meets Hazel, played by Irene Kavanagh, and quickly becomes infatuated with her, much to the displeasure of Chrissie McCabe, played by Martha Fleming, from the neighbouring farm, who has always had her eye on Gabriel.

When circumstances warrant that a rehearsal has to be held at Gabriel’s home, the action shifts into full comic gear, with neighbouring farmer, Liam Gavigan, played by Brian O’Sullivan, and Aggie’s sister, Lucy Lacey, acted by Gina O’Shea, playing their part in stirring the pot.

Adding spice to the mixture are the posh writer and director, Morag Dellamere played by Sarah Pigott, and Clive Snell played by Mike Moriarty, a self-important member of ‘The Prince of Denmark Players’ who, coincidentally, also has his eye on Hazel. The part of Aggie Foley herself is played by Bridget Cahillane.

The play is directed by Brendan Reidy who is no stranger to drama. Brendan was a thespian with the Sliabh Luachra Drama Group for many years before moving to Killorglin and getting involved in the CYMS Players, and brings his own unique style of direction and stunning set design to this production.

Following record breaking crowds at last year’s production it is advisable to book early  to avoid disappointment. Contact the ticket office on 066 9762053. Admission is €12.

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.”
