The Corn Mill Theatre Group has won the All-Ireland Open Drama Finals in Athlone on three occasions – in 1998 with Belfry by Billy Roche, in 2005 with Stolen Child by Yvonne Quinn and Bairbre Ni Chaoimh and in 2014 with The Devil’s Ceili by Philip Doherty & Kevin McGahern.
The tradition of Drama in Carrigallen goes back to the late 1800s. The present group was founded in 1963 as The Community Players and there has been no break in activity since that time. In 1989 the group opened their own theatre – The Corn Mill Theatre & Arts Centre.
