Breaking Barriers Theatre Group were delighted to welcome Eamonn Carroll to Crann to visit our Children’s and Youth sessions.

Eamonn is Festival Director of the Blackwater Valley Opera Festival, which runs from May 25th to June 5th in Lismore, Co. Waterford.

Eamonn got involved in the drama groups, getting to peek behind the curtain as they prepare for their own live performances in the Stack Theatre in March this year. 

He toured the facilities at Crann and heard from parents over a cup of tea!
