  1. The artistic director, Tomas MacAnna, was a Dundalk man. Came from Vincent Avenue. His sister was head teacher in a large school not a million miles away (channeling Rory now) from where you grew up. Just sayin’ 🙂

  2. And of course was father of writer Ferdia (Rocky De Velera ) who was writer in residence in DKIT in 2012/13
