The legendary Panto “Puss in Boots” comes to Our Ladys Hall on Mourne road in Drimnagh.

This amateur production looks anything but and the locals are out in force cheering on the stars of the show. Many people from Crumlin and Drimnagh offer their spare time to help put the show together from the actors and costume designers to the set painters, electricians and carpenters.
