    Wexford does off beat operas which other places don’t do like Balfe’s Bohemian Girl . mostly obscure ones, they fly the whole lost in, orchestra and all instead of using RTE orchestra.

      Wexford has its own orchestra and chorus so don’t know where that comment came from. The PM’s name isVaradkar.
