 “Moll” In Fenagh

On Sunday night 9th April at 8.30pm 'The Sliabh an Iarainn Players '  in association with  Castlefore Development Fenagh will stage their very successful play 'Moll'  in the Community Centre in Fenagh. 'Moll' is regarded as John B. Keane's most comical play and has given past  audiences a great nights entertainment with loads of laughs. It is a great testament to any production that some people came twice and three times to see it such was their enjoyment. The great reviews received and the demand from a large number of people convinced the group to stage it again. The very talented cast come from Leitrim, Cavan. Longford and Roscommon. Tish Dunleavy plays the title role 'Moll' and she brings her own very unique humour and comedy to the part. The other characters are all played by a very talented cast under the direction of Frank Cadam.
A great nights entertainment is guaranteed and a very worthy cause will benefit from the night. Admission €10
