Mount Temple Pupils play on Direct Provision: performance in University College Galway.

Written by DaraMacNamara on . Posted in Featured, Students' Blog

On the 18th of December, Mount Temple students were invited to put on their play ‘Eire: Land of 100,000 Welcomes’ in the O’Donoghue Theatre in Galway University. The students played to a full house made up of students, academics, people in direct provision and the public. There was a short question and answer session with the director, Laura Doak and the cast after the performance. In January, the cast were presented with a certificate from the university.
