Join us for “Same Old Moon” by Geraldine Aaron performed by Sliabh Aughty Drama Group in the 2024 Bostik All Ireland Confined Drama Finals.


The play follows the life of Brenda Byrnes from age nine right through to her forties. As we journey with her through her life, we witness many challenges she faces including having a short-tempered mother and a father who is his own worst enemy. This insight to their family life is both absorbing and poignant from start to finish.


Sliabh Aughty Drama Group was formed in 1989 in Mountshannon, Co. Clare. The group’s first production was ‘The Field’ by John B Keane, which achieved 2nd place in the All Ireland Drama Final under the guidance of Maud Nash. Since then, the group has performed regularly on the festival circuit with plays like ‘Power of Darkness’, ‘I Do Not Like Thee Doctor Fell’ and more recently, ‘Unforgiven’, ‘Sive’, and ‘Moonglow’, which all competed in All Ireland Finals.
