..And so the road towards a New Factory has begun – during the redevelopment of The Factory classes will be held in two venues St. Matthews School in Sandymount and The LIR National Academy of Dramatic Arts which is just across from The Factory at Grand Canal Dock. Both are fabulous venues and we are delighted that they are welcoming NPAS while our home, The Factory, gets the TLC that it needs! We are so excited about the future of the school, and about everything that lies ahead. NPAS – Be Who U Want 2 Be
