You have been shamefully and amazingly quiet on this post from one of our local artists Amy Laura even though you , as stated, didn't have proof they were local. I'm sure all the commenters and you're own followers would love to hear your side of things. I wanted to say something publicly for a while now and this refers to the Clonmel Junction Arts Festival that has been running in Clonmel for over a decade. I highlighted some things in the first page of their programme because I found them hard to read. Without going into the full story, simply James Whelan and I have produced our own play, to a professional standard, and we are touring it around the country. We always had it mind to enter the Junction festival with our play "TWO" because not only have I worked in the festival for many years but I've supported it financially by seeing as much theatre and music as i possibly can each year. James and I contacted the festival director months ago and we were ignored. We invited her to see our play, we were ignored. We contacted her by email, Facebook, and eventually only through the support of Paul Higgins, the owner of Mulcahys pub did we actually get an answer. Paul was willing to give us his venue free of charge for the Junction festival. The manager of the festival replied to Paul Higgins saying she needed his venue last minute for one of the festival gigs and would enter us into the programme but would not give us any financial backing. We agreed to this even though it's highly degrading to be in a festival without any support from the festival organisers. Paul contacted me once he spoke to the festival manager, he told me that she had put his venue in the programme for the gig she needed it for but didn't put us in because it was too late and she had no proof that we were a local theatre group anyway. As a consolation we were told we could put our poster up in their box office but other than that we were not going to get any support from them. I feel compelled to let people know that this festival is supposedly focused on local talent. We were utterly dismissed. So much so, it's actually embarrassing. "TWO" has been received exceptionally well by audiences . James and I will continue to bring this play around the country and keep a professional standard in our work. It is such a pity that we could not get some support from the Arts community of our hometown. Needless to say neither of us will be going to any of the shows in this year's programme.
