Local History Brought to Life!

Heritage Week
NEWS / 24 October 2020

Animating the notoriously dangerous old tram line that ran through Terenure to recreating the murder of a local gardener at St Joseph's church, our second years first researched their local history, wrote their script, directed it and performed it live on the spot where these historical events took place.

Other events they recreated was the reimaging of the Old Bethany Laundry (a Protestant run laundry similar to the more infamous Magdelene Laundries) that was situated on Orwell Road.

Another group of students based their play around Bram Stoker (he was once a resident on Orwell road), Dracula awakes to find imposters littered around the 'Bram Stoker' festival. Dracula visits Orwell road to have it out with his apparent creator!

A huge well done to 2X, who amazed me with their creativity, passion and commitment to their task.
