Congratulations to the Blue Raincoat Theatre Company on their 20th anniversary this month. Based in the heart of Sligo, the Blue Raincoat is one of the few theatres in Ireland with a permanent venue to its name, along with The Abbey, Gate and Druid Theatre Companies.
Hamilton Young Architects involvement with the Blue Raincoats extends back more than a decade. The development of the Factory Performance Space in Sligo was overseen by former director David Lawlor and was completed in 2000. The Blue Raincoat Theatre Company were the outright winners of the national AIB Better Ireland Awards for the development project in 1999 and Hamilton Young Architects won the national COTHU Business Sponsorship of the Year award for our contribution to the project.
So, happy birthday Blue Raincoats, from all at Hamilton Young Architects!
