Blackrock_ParkHaggleRock Theatre Group based in Haggardstown/Blackrock gathered on Thursday evening last in The Stonehouse Restaurant, Blackrock to hand over donations to three local community groups which was a result of the proceeds from their recent sell out performance ‘Only An Hour From Dublin’.

Chairman, Patricia Reynolds quoted ‘I am delighted to be in a position to hand over three donations to our local community in Haggardstown & Blackrock. The groups aim from the beginning in June 2014 was to have fun and enjoy the genre of theatre/acting and in addition to make new friends and give back to the community’. That dream became a reality as the members gathered to celebrate the success of their first performance of ‘Only An Hour From Dublin’ and were proud to be able to give something back to their local communities.

The first donation of €1,000 went to St. Fursey’s Primary School in Haggardstown where Principal, Marie Doonan collected the cheque on behalf of the school. HaggleRock Theatre Group expressed their thanks in allowing them to hold their weekly meetings and rehearsals for the past seven months free of charge in the school hall.

The second donation of €1,000 was made to The Geraldines’ G.F.C. in Haggardstown to Chairman, Padraig McDonnell. The Geraldines’ stepped up and offered the use of their hall to stage HaggleRock’s first performance. The venue proved to be a fantastic choice and the event was a ‘sell out’ on both nights thanks to strong back up teams from committees in HaggleRock and The Geraldines’ who went above and beyond the call of duty.

The final donation of €500 went to the Blackrock Park committee where Karen Coan, Richard Martin Shirley Durkin & Anne Fennelly collected the cheque on their behalf. This donation was a random choice due to the huge amount of work being undertaken to enhance the park at present. It is hoped that in the near future HaggleRock Theatre will make donations to other organisations in the community from future productions that they plan to stage.

Some other fantastic news announced on the night was the invitation to perform ‘Only An Hour From Dublin’ at the Droichead Arts Centre for three nights on June 16th, 17th & 18that 8 pm. Tickets can be purchase at their two locations in Stockwell Street and Barlow House on West Street, Drogheda or alternatively on their website www.droichead.com
