Of course if you are lucky enough to live in the vicinity of Durrow, “things to go to” are never far away. So why not soothe away those Scarecrow Blues with a visit to another exciting attraction coming your way very soon…
Durrow Fadó Writers Group and the local White Lady Drama Group have joined forces to bring you a really unique play, The Ferryman’s Daughter. This is an outdoor play depicting an episode in the rich history and heritage of 18th century Durrow. The first act of the play will commence on the banks of the river Erkina, then move to the Square and conclude in the grounds of Castle Durrow. Spectacular features of the presentation will include period costume, horse drawn carriages, a ferryman’s cottage on the banks of the river Erkina and also a depiction of 18th century cottage life in Durrow.
The play will be performed during Heritage Week, Tuesday August 26th and Wednesday August 27th commencing at 7.45pm each evening. Due to health and safety issues, tickets will be in limited supply, so it is advisable to book your tickets early to avoid disappointment. Details of ticket distribution outlets are available on the event flyer available in local business premises or available from any member of the White Lady Drama Group or Durrow Fadó Writers Group.
