Chair of the Ballymote-Tobercurry Municipal District Councillor Dara Mulvey last month hosted a reception in Teach Laighne, Tubbercurry for the Western Drama festival committee.

Cllr Mulvey stated that it was a great honour to pay public tribute to one of the most valued institutions in South Sligo who have played a hugely important role and for 75 years have entertained and enthralled audiences of all ages.

The committee of dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly yearly to host this festival deserve great credit for their efforts, and especially this year of 2017 as Sligo holds the title of the European capital of Volunteering.

Cllr Mulvey added that Sligo County Council will always aim to support local community-based events.
