The fun of Bui Bolg Circus

BUÍ BOLG kids like to keep all their balls in the air.

That's why a cash injection has helped the street theatre company invest in circus equipment and skills. Buí Bolg was one of several local groups to benefit from recent VEC capital grants.

The group decided to invest the cash in all sorts of circus equipment, from hula hoops to juggling clubs and safety equipment – along with several DVDs on how to actually perform the tricks.

Said Lucy Medlycott of Buí Bolg: 'We bought circus equipment and the kids are learning to use them. We also got DVDs to teach us. We don't all come from a circus background.'

Buí Bolg has been busy recently in the run up to Christmas and last weekend was involved in a parade on the town, and in the closing events for Enniscorthy 1500.

'We were involved in the parade along Wexford's Main Street last week. We had a sleigh out, polar bears and even live Christmas trees,' said Lucy on Monday. BUÍ BOLG kids like to keep all their balls in the air.
