Ballina ONE ACT Drama Festival

Change is inevitable and as we continue our preparations for the All Ireland One Act drama Finals we take some time out to acknowledge Sean Walsh – outgoing director of Ballina Arts Centre.

Sean has supported our One Act Drama Festival right from when it was a mere “Idea” and has been invaluable to us. Although preferring to oversee the festivals in his discreet manner from side-stage Sean has actually played a leading role in our journey to date.

Working with Sean and his team has been our pleasure and when we say nothing – we mean absolutely nothing we requested was too much trouble.

There is no doubt that although he may not have known it – Sean was a very important part of our backroom team and for that we will always be truly grateful.

Sean has been at the helm of Ballina Arts Centre since it opened 16 years ago and during that time has always made us feel more than welcome.

We wish Sean the very best as he traverses the Shannon and brings his wealth of artistic direction and gentle demeanour to Esker Arts – Tullamore.

Go n-éirí an bóthar leat, a chara.
