The three largest items on that list of grants are:

Druid Theatre Company presenting “Penelope” by Enda Walsh at St Ann’s Warehouse, Brooklyn, New York, 26th Oct - 14 Nov, 2010
€48,000

Druid Theatre Company presenting "Penelope" by Enda Walsh at the Hampstead Theatre, London from the 7th February - 12th March 2011 and at the Studio Theatre, Washington DC, USA from the 15th March - 3rd April 2010
€85,000

Camerata Ireland performing a tour of the US, March 2011
€75,000

Somebody please explain to me why I - the hard pressed Irish taxpayer - am being forced to subsidise the theatre viewing habits of the English and Americans.


Actually not a bad investment from a tourism point of view, if the plays are any good. I'd say its a fair bit less than the army spends on its show jumping team.
