Making Waves Publishing was established by Leslie Long, Kathleen Ruddy and Phil
Dalton of Making Waves Productions following the success of three productions of
Caisléain Óir - The Musical.
Caisléain Óir premièred in An Grianán Theatre, Letterkenny in 2000, with a re-run
in 2001. The 2005 production, also in An Grianán, played to packed houses once again,
averaging 97% occupancy over all 13 performances.
In 2006, Caisléain Óir received an AIMS
special adjudicator's award, encouraging
the production team to publishing the musical, enabling other societies to perform
Excerpts from the 2005 production appeared on RTE's Nationwide programme in 2006.
In 2010, Caisléain Óir was performed by The Butt Drama Circle in The Balor Theatre,
Ballybofey, again with sell-out performances.
In 2011, Kintra recorded "Sometimes I Wonder" taken from Caisléain Óir.
