The Bornacoola Players

The Bornacoola Players

The count down begins! You enjoyed our previous shows so be prepared for the entertainment & fun to return! The Bornacoola Players are a group of mostly “normal” people, who come together each year to see which of them can really make a show of themselves.....and this year is no different!!! Bernard Farrell’s “I do not like thee Dr. Fell” is the ideal platform to allow the madness to flow! The cast are: Johnny D (trainer extraordinaire/alarm bells ringing) as Joe Fell. Padraig (Jonesy/ the “vice” man) as Roger.

Sharon Jones (“ I know where you live”) as Rita. Darren Shiels (the carpet laying Cavan man) as Paddy. Declan B (Sir, Mr Manager, and don’t you forget it!!) as Peter. Ger Moran (proud mum of the fab Damo) as Maureen. Anne McG (in my next life I”ll be tall) as Suzy. Dates: 7th, 8th & 9th March, Venue: Bornacoola Centre, Time: 8pm. Tickets: 085 8186578, so get to the phone to avoid disappointment!.
