The Community and Education Department of the Abbey Theatre together with Baboró,  presented  “Me, Mollser” – a specially commissioned monologue play which introduces “The Plough and the Stars” by Seán O’ Casey to a younger audience by telling the story of the Easter Rising 1916 through the magical power of a performance and workshop. This Thursday (28th Jan. 2016) morning at Presentation N.S., Millstreet 5th & 6th Class pupils from the Presentation N.S., Scoil Mhuire B.N.S. and Cloghoula N.S. experienced this absolutely brilliant production and workshop.  It was a true privilege to have been in attendance.  (S.R.)
