Jenny Fennessy from Ballysaggart and Dylan Kennedy from Glenville returned to live in Jenny’s grandmothers cottage in Ballysaggart a number of years ago having worked as actors in some of London’s most prestigious theatres.
Their journeys to the big stage followed different paths but it was when those paths crossed that both of their lives took a turn for the better.
Dylan Kennedy grew up in Glenville and was sent to Speech and Drama classes alongside his other siblings from a young age and he took part in pantomimes with the Monfort College of Performing Arts in Cork.
“They were amazing because there was about 30 or 40 in the cast and we were split in two and as soon as we got our Christmas holidays we would be rehearsing every single day from 9am to 9pm. There was a real gang of us and we were all really close friends,” he recalled with a smile.
