Mumming centre for old national schoolMumming centre for old national school
Monday, 24th October 2005

The former Aughakillymaude National School is to become a centre for mumming, at a cost of £250,000. Work on the new centre, near Derrylin, has already started and it is due to be finished by next spring. Already children are able to learn how to make mummers' straw hats in Aughakillymaude Community Centre and an exhibition is to be set up explaining the history of the mumming tradition. At the new centre there will be sixteen life-sized models of the main characters in mumming plays from both Britain and Ireland.
