Firstly, and most importantly, a huge THANKS to you, our audience. Without your warm support (& spreading the word about us) we would never have made it back for a second round. We really hope to see you again next summer.
A special thank you also goes to all of our behind-the-scenes team who have given huge amounts of time, skill & love to the project. We could not have done any of it without your amazing help… Karin Paynter for her beautiful website design and Elie Zaccour for his gorgeous poster design; Elaine Bennett for her fantastic help with PR; Hannah Beecham & Frank Burke for their wonderful photos of the house and company; Pat Clarke for his kind help in preparing the grounds and finally, Mick Roddy & Richie Murray for generously lending us seating and marquees respectively and brilliant support with logistics.
Huge thanks also to James Beveridge, Sophie Beveridge, James Woods, Aidan Kelly, Emma Pallant, Richard Cook, the Beecham family, Pat & Paddy Casey, Brian McGrath, Spell’s Bar, Pat Towey, Tommy Finn, Molly Finn, Bridie & Pat Clarke, the Ewings family, the Cartin family, the Raveney family, Dean Pearce, Dean Mendetta, Martin Sweeney, Sean Coleman, David Towey, Johnny Markey, the Mullins family, Ryan McGoldrick and Fergal Loghan.
A big shout out to Roscommon County Council for sponsoring the event – we are very grateful for your support.
Finally, we would like to thank our ridiculously talented company for making their pilgrimages from London to take part in, let’s face it, quite a mad little venture. What a joy it has been to share it with you. We’re already looking forward to more cakes & ale in Ballaghaderreen next year.
