Kinvara Dramatic Society scored a notable success with “A Damsel From Dublin” which ran for three nights this week to packed houses at Johnston’s Hall, Kinvara.

Under the inspired direction of Mr Kieran Moylan, the play lacked nothing in production and comedy.  Kieran himself took the part of the “damsel” and few could have done it better. Paddy Joe Keane played the part of Michael Guinan, “the man of the house” to perfection; Toddy Byrne was an excellent “son of the house” in the role of Michael Junior. In the major male roles Sean Nolan and Brian Clery as two “neighbours” acquitted themselves very well. Joe Regan and Paddy Geraghty carried off their parts as solicitors in excellent fashion. Miss Sally Regan, the female lead, as “Belinda Duffy” and her “mother” played by Miss Bridie Quinn, were excellent. Mrs Margaret Connolly as “Mrs Cleary” was first class.
The evening opened with some catchy choruses by Messrs Kieran Moylan, Toddy Byrne, P.J. Keane and Joe Regan, and the Misses B. Quinn, M. Connolly, F. Halvey, S. Regan and M. Muldoon.  Miss Mary Keane and Miss A. O’Shea rendered solos, and Miss Roseen Moylan danced a hornpipe.
Musical selections by Messrs Joe Leary, J.Wade, Bob Gardiner and Syd McPhillips added to the enjoyment.
Miss B. Quinn N.T. who compered the show thanked the audience and artistes.
The production will be staged at Clarenbridge Hall on Sunday next.
