Kerry Drama Festival 2018 Results

Kerry Drama Festival was delayed by one day because of the snow (the Beast from the East) but this did not stop eight nights of top class entertainment at the Ivy Leaf Theatre in Castleisland.
There were four plays in the Confined Section and four plays in the Open Section and the standard was very high making the job of adjudicator Walker Ewart very difficult. Mr Ewart gave the most thorough, passionate, informative and fair summing up of the plays each night and in the end he had the unenviable task of separating the winners from the losers.
Here are the Kerry Drama Festival 2018 Results:
