Burroughs, in the Michael Davitt GAA Hall Swatragh on Thursday 26th, Friday 27th and Saturday 28th March.  The Group first performed this play 13 years ago and have decided it is time for a re-run.  The Granaghan Players are long established and have had some major successes with dramas such as “The Field”, “Philadelphia Here I Come”, and their most recent production “The Great Swatragh Bank Robbery”.  If you want to spend 2 hours splitting your sides laughing, then don’t miss “Affluence” in Swatragh this weekend.
