Prosperous Drama

Now that we’ve finally recovered from the weekend we’d like to thank a moment to thank everyone in Athlone and all over the country for a wonderful circuit 2022.

Everyone in Team Prosperous had a fantastic experience this year and we’re beyond thrilled to see the circuit back with such a bang! 💥

Thank you Regina Bushell & the committee for a week and gala to remember, to Michael Poyner for his adjudication in Athlone, Aodh McCay Drama for his adjudication in the Ulster finals and every other committee member and adjudicator we had the pleasure of crossing paths with this year that made the circuit a ride to remember!

Roll on 2023!

The curtains have closed on the performances at the RTÉ All Ireland Drama Festival. The nine participating groups entertained audiences across the country before bringing their best performances to Athlone for the culmination of the 2022 ADCI Full Length Festival Circuit. Each of the groups and their communities can be very proud of their achievements.

Now we wait with bated breath for the final verdict of adjudicator, Michael Poynor, who will announce the results at the Gala Awards night tonight in Athlone.
