THE ST. Vincent de Paul's new hall in Michael Street will turn into a theatre next weekend when Ballycogley Players present their season of three on act plays.

Next Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 8 p.m. the hall will become a live theatre venue as the group stage the comedies 'Albert' by Richard Harris, ' A Time of Wolves and Tigers' by Hugh Leonard and ' Bad Habits', which was written by the crew themselves.
