Our Society

“Still you wouldn't trade it for a sack o' gold
Let's go on with the show”


The Christian Brothers were influential again, when Bother Canny, who had been involved in the earlier CBS productions, returned to Enniscothy. He started a Past Pupils’ Union in 1971 and suggested they set up a Musical Society in 1972.


The first show of the newly formed ‘Enniscorthy Musical and Dramatic Society’ was ‘Easter Parade 73’ which entertained packed houses with music, songs, sketches and choral numbers. Two more successful concerts gave the young society the confidence to tackle a full-length musical operetta. Ernie Barber was producer, Ann O’Leary came in as choreographer, costumes were from hired from Dublin and in March 1976. The Desert Song wowed local audiences.
