After a 26 year break the society returned to the stage in 1974 with a performance of Gilbert and Sullivans' 'The Pirates of Penzance'. Since then, they have performed to such exceedingly high standards that they are now one of the leading, award winning societies in the Association of Irish Musical Societies (AIMS). Each year in Ballinrobe the Musical Society have brought many of the world's leading musicals to life in their own inimatible way, earning rave reviews at local and national level.

The Pirate Queen

In February 2010 Ballinrobe Musical Society brought the world amateur premiere of 'The Pirate Queen' from Broadway to Ballinrobe. The show which tells the story of Mayo's own Granuaile (Grace O'Malley), is the brainchild of Riverdance creators John McColgan and Moya Doherty, who both travelled to Ballinrobe to see the wonderful presentation of the show given by the very talented musical society.
