Edinburgh Fringe Festival
The Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Heather Humphreys TD, has today (Thursday, 11 September, 2014) wished Olwen Fouéré continued success ahead of her departure this weekend to the United States for a tour of her award winning show riverrun. Olwen was one of a number of high profile Irish winners at the recent Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which Minister Humphreys attended last month. Speaking today Minister Humphreys said: ‘This year was an incredible year for Irish artists at the Edinburgh Fringe, thanks to Culture Ireland’s showcase programme. Edinburgh is the like the world championship for theatre, and we should all be immensely proud of the success of Irish artists’.
