Great night of 'Mama Mia'

Last night's performance of 'Mama Mia' in the Town Hall Theatre was a riot of colour, energy, and pure effervescent entertainment, writes Brian Byrne.

The young people from Athy, under the direction of Aiden McHugh, sang, danced, and signed their way through the story that has kept the musical legacy of Abba alive for decades on stages across the world.

The audience were right in tune with things two, especially the back row group of very young people enjoying a birthday night out.

The event was a local marking of Irish Sign Language Awareness Week, which underpins a campaign by the Irish Deaf Society to make Irish Sign Language the third official language of Ireland.
