A spokesperson for the group said “We are very lucky here in Inch Players to have such a lovely Community Hall always at our disposal and many thanks to the hall committee for always being there for us”.

She added: “It would be very remiss of us all not to mention the anchor of the group, Marese Kennedy Marese looks after us all, rarely misses a rehearsal, always willing to step in when needed.  The nights we are on stage, Marese ensures there are always enough people to look after the door and she ensures we have cover for the shop etc.  She manages our finances in a very professional manner and we are very grateful to her for all she does for us. We thank our loyal supporters who turn out each year to our performances.  Without you we could not go on. We also would like to mention our esteemed President, Tom O’Sullivan, who is the longest serving member of our group”.
