Regretted death of Frank McCarthy

This Saturday night’s performance of Skibbereen Theatre Society’s production of ‘No Romance’ by Nancy Harris at the Town Hall is dedicated to the memory of our dear departed colleague Frank McCarthy, who passed away today.

Frank was a founder member of the group and acted in numerous productions over many years. He served as chairman during some of its most successful years on the drama festival circuit.

It was the wish of Frank and his family that the show would go on and, while deeply saddened by his death, the group is happy to honour their wishes. His wife Anna has always given great support to Skibbereen Theatre Society and son Gearóid is carrying on the family involvement with the group, both on stage and off.

Our heartfelt sympathy goes to them, son Frank jnr and all of his family and friends.
