Coman Keaveny is special guest
Coman’s involvement in drama begun at a very young age, fostered by his late mother Margaret Keaveny (RIP), who was a native of Roscommon and always kept her loyalty to the primrose and blue.
The appetite for drama further developed over the years when Coman became a very active member within the Glenamaddy Drama movement.
He now holds the honour of being Chairperson of the Amateur Drama Council of Ireland, and is honoured to be invited to officially open the Roscommon Drama Festival.
