FOLLOWING a highly successful six-night run, the Granagh Players are getting ready for one final performance.

The last two weekends have seen full and nearly full houses for their production of Dion Boucicault’s London Assurance.

And this Saturday, February 2, the curtain will again go up on this lively and raucous farce. This time, the performance will be in aid of St Joseph’s Foundation, Charleville.

The foundation has recently bought a arm in Liskennett, Granagh and plans to develop a new autism unit there.

Planning permission for the project has been granted and tendering is in progress for the unit itself.

“They are fundraising for equipment for the unit at the moment,” Mary O’Regan, PRO for the Granagh Players explained this week. “They will also have an equestrian centre there and one piece of equipment alone, a life-size model horse, is going to cost €23,000”.

You can do your bit by turning up at 8pm this Saturday night at Granagh Community Centre.

Tickets cost €10 or €5 for teenagers and a raffle will take place.
