‘Murder Mystery’ in Church of Ireland Parish in Douglas, Cork

A ‘murder’ took place on 22nd and 23rd of October in the Canon Packham Hall in Saint Luke’s Parish, Douglas County Cork. Over the two nights about 250 people witnessed the incident.  It was the brainwave of Douglas Curate, the Reverend David Bowles who orchestrated it all.

Much work went into the production and organisation of the event. The actors were on top form on the top table.


There were two incident packed evenings .  Only one table on Friday but four on Saturday managed to work out who had done the dastardly deed, and how, and why!

Much thanks must go to the Bull McCabes who provided the food and all the actors, those who worked in the kitchen. Also to those who provided raffle prizes and so many others who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make the hall look fantastic and everyone else who contributed in making this event such a success!

It was great to see so many people from across the Union of Parishes and outside the regular parish circles coming together to make such a night possible.

It is hoped this is only the beginning of a more regular thespian endeavour. Thankfully we all got out of it alive!
