During their many years on the Festival circuit the group have performed in various festivals ranging from Ballyshannon and Shercock in the North to Doonbeg, Scarriff and Ballyduff in the South. In addition they are noted for their appearances in the Connaught Festivals such as Claremorris, Claregalway and Tubbercurry.The group have qualified on a number of occasions for the All Ireland Finals, originally in 1985 with their production of "Big Maggie" and most recently with their productions of "The Communication Cord" in 2000 and "Eclipsed" in 2002. In 2013 after a long absence Glenamaddy Players qualified for the All-Ireland Finals in Rossmore, Co.Cork with their production of Moment by Deirdre Kinahan. This was followed in 2014 with the very highly successful "Agnes of God" which again reached the All-Ireland Finals in Claremorris winning four festivals on the circuit. As with 2013 there were numerous awards won on the festival circuit. In the Autumn of 2014 the Players staged "Rumors" by Neil Simon in the Town Hall Theatre, Glenamaddy with good crowds attending a highly entertaining show. Last year we saw the Players back on the circuit with "Stolen Child" which was directed again by Coman Keaveny. Once again the Players qualified for the All-Ireland. 2016 sees Glenamaddy Players again qualifying for the All-Ireland with brilliant interpretation of Marsha Norman's night Mother.
