Doonbeg Drama Group

Doonbeg has a long tradition of drama going back to the early 1960’s when there were three groups in the parish, Bealaha, Clohanes and Doonbeg.

After 1962 plays were performed intermittently until the present group was revitalized in 1981 by Murt McInerney and Mary J. Egan.

In the 1980’s the group concentrated on presenting productions locally, at the West Clare Drama Festival and occasionally venturing as far as Scarriff!
