The sun shone on members of Bridge Drama Group as they were honoured with a Civic Reception in the Irish National Heritage Park recently.

To acknowledge their recent success in the world of drama, the Castlebridge-based group was brought together for a special celebration with Mayor of Wexford Cllr Ger Carthy and other members of the council.

Bridge Drama Group recently won the 63rd RTE All-Ireland Drama Festival in Athlone for its production of Neil Simon's Lost in Yonkers. The Bridge Drama Group production also won awards for Best Director (Pat Whelan) and Best Stage Setting (Pat Curran, Pat Whelan, Sarah Whelan, Adrian Power, Liam Clancy). As if that wasn't enough success for one year, the group went on to fly the flag for Wexford as champions of the Ulster Drama Finals. Heather Hadrill won the award for 'Best Actress', while Jay and Arty picked up the prize for 'Most Promising Young Player' in the same competition.
