The Irish Times Theatre Awards 2013: A Great Night for Galway


There’s no better way to kick off this year’s GAF blog than with news of last night’s Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards, which took place at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham to honour what has been another great year for Irish theatre.

Much to the delight of all at GAF, Galway dominated proceedings with DruidMurphy taking Best Production, Little John Nee winning Best Sound Designer for Sparkplug, Marie Mullen taking Best Supporting Actress for her part in Druid’s Conversations on a Homecoming and a richly deserved Special Tribute Award, while Aaron Monaghan took Best Supporting Actor for his work in Conversations on a Homecoming.

Speaking on behalf of himself and GAF’s chief executive John Crumlish, artistic director Paul Fahy said, ‘We are delighted so many great theatre artists from Galway were nominated for the theatre awards and are especially pleased for the accolades paid to Tom Murphy and Marie Mullen. DruidMurphy was an amazing undertaking and so deserving of its awards tonight.’

The GAF team would like to congratulate all the nominees and winners at this year’s Irish Theatre Awards. Here’s to another year of world class Irish productions.
