Mullinalaghta native at the helm of world-class production

The acclaimed story of Irish Independence and The Easter Rising through music, song, dance and storytelling entitled the ‘The Spirit Of Freedom’ will return to the Olympia Theatre from May 1-6 next.

Mullinalaghta native Laura Callaghan is a member of the cast that is currently touring the USA with the production.  

“I  have been a multi instrumentalist on this show for the past four months over in the USA and Canada,” Laura told the Leader this week while taking a quick break from her hectic schedule.  

“We have travelled over 33 States in all weather conditions to bring the celebration of our 100 years since the Easter Rising State side and it has been  a wonderful experience.”
