What a Christmas Present! Having made history by being the first winners of the MOL Cup at Dunmore Drama Festival, D.A.D.S. came through a tough series of qualifiers with their version of Geraldine
Aron's wonderful One Act play "A Galway Girl" and made it to Roscommon for the All Ireland Finals with further wins in Kiltimagh and Tubbercurry. The competition in the All Ireland finals is always keen and this year was no exception. However, when Geoffrey
O'Keeffe gave his adjudication on the Saturday night of the Dunmore performance, we dared to hope. Despite a few small reservations, he was very positive about the performances from Tracy Bruen and Damian O'Keeffe. His admission that the hair stood on the
back of his neck on a few occasions during the play was certainly an indicator that he found the D.A.D.S. performance compelling. So it proved to be. When the results were announced the following night, D.A.D.S. took the crown and brought an All Ireland Drama
title to Dunmore for the first time. Our picture shows Tracy and Damian in a scene from the play.
