Cushendall, a beautiful spot in the Glens of Antrim, is almost as far from Ballyduff as you can get in Ireland. However, the results this weekend for their Lurig Drama Group on the one-act drama circuit meant that they have come much nearer to being in Ballyduff on the All-Ireland drama weekend of 7th - 9th December. With victory in Newtownabbey festival, they have now two wins and a second and are a good bet for a place in the finals. In the Confined Section, Breffni Players from Carrick-on-Shannon lead the way with two wins out of two and are also looking good. So there's a good chance that David Mamet's "The Duck Variations" and Don Nigro's "Scarecrow" will be two of the plays that you will see in All-Ireland action. Still, there's many a slip.

If using Sat Nav, be careful when inputting. There are at least three Ballyduffs in County Waterford. In particular, there is a village called Ballyduff about five miles from Waterford City. This is not us! Coordinates 52° 08' 51" N, 8° 03' 06" W will get you pretty near the correct Ballyduff! more
