Established in 1990, the main aim of MINITOPS is to encourage young community groups in the arts of music, dance, comedy and drama. We run an annual competition during which each group performs a full variety show of 40 to 60 minutes, with two groups participating each evening during the Easter holidays.

We supply the venue, professional sound and lighting technicians and complete backstage crew who give wonderful support and advice on sets and special effects.

We follow up with semi finals and grand finals, presentations of trophies, certificates and adjudicators special awards and a fabulous time is had by everyone.

We are extremely proud of all the young people who have taken part in MINITOPS down the years and who continue to do so.

Groups taking part in MINITOPS down the years have come from all areas of Dublin (North, South, East & West - too numerous to list!), Carlow, Kildare, Monaghan and Co. Louth, with individuals going on to perform in pantomime, stage play, cruise ships and to win scholarships in th U.K. - but most importantly, to gain skills in confidence, interaction, teamwork, respect and admiration for each other's talents.

We hope it will go on for many years to come!
