Award winning Comedian, Conal Gallen is bringing his brand new Comedy Play, “Off Your Trolley”, to theatres across Ireland this Autumn. Father and son team, Conal and Rory Gallen have written their 4th Comedy Play, and it is, without doubt, their funniest comedy play ever!

“Off Your Trolley” is a rip-roaring, laugh a minute tale of life in a hospital ward! It’s packed with craic, confusion and constant laughter!” Where the story leads? Nobody knows! Not even the other actors some nights, as in true Conal Gallen style he likes to throw in some new lines just to keep them on their toes!

So why not Join Bridie, Willie, Dick, Betty and the infamous Father “Big Mad Micky” O’Reilly as they show us hospital life, as it has never been seen before. They’ll have you “in stitches” from start to finish!

You’d have to be completely “offyourtrolley” to miss this hilarious brand new comedy play from the cream of Irish comedy! It certainly proves that “Laughter is still the best medicine”!

Allow yourself to sit back and let the hustle and bustle fade away. The Christmas season begins right here, so let your spirit be moved!

Derek Ryan

Derek Ryan continues to maintain his position at the top table of Irish Country Music’s elite with his brand of original material and country classics. His album, ‘The Fire’ spawned the hits ‘Heaven Tonight’, ‘Homeland’ and “Down On Your Uppers’ which will be featured along with his many classics ‘Hold On To Your Hat’, ‘God’s Plan’ and ‘Life Is A River’ during this concert tour.

The Carlow man, who is a many times recipient of awards for his performances and song writing, Including the Sunday World accolade for ‘Album of the Year’ and ‘Songwriter of the Year’ in 2018.

The highlight of the show is considered the moment the band and performance is stripped back, when Derek is left alone with his guitar on stage. This, to Derek, is a chance for his audience to get to know him better, and know more about the music.

And Thank You...

And thank you...

Written and performed by Seamus O’Rourke & Directed by Charles McGuinness

Seamus O’Rourke joins forces with director Charles McGuinness – The team who brought us ‘Padraig Potts’ Guide to Walking’ ...

And thank you... is a play about an ordinary man living in rural Ireland who gets saved... Saved from a life of pub talk and prophesising... King John O’Sullivan used to be able to drink fifteen pints without having to piddle, now, it’s every nine... Going to the Gents so often can wear a man out.

The story is told by the Reverend Thaddaeus Clancy and O’Sullivan’s two sons, Larry and Martin. The sons run the family shop while Daddy, the king of McKenna’s bar makes up the rules.

It’s a story of hard work and success and dangling... There’s bad driving and ice hockey and there’s falling down. When the ‘Divel’ starts to gnaw, the kingdom will fall...

And thank you...

The Matchmaker

02 February 2019 8:00 pm

The Matchmaker
THE MATCHMAKER based on the novella “Letters of a County Matchmaker” by JOHN B. KEANE one of Ireland’s most celebrated writers, will play at Íontas Theatre, Castleblayney. 

The production stars television favorite Mary McEvoy known for her roles as Biddie in the long running RTE series GLENROE.  Irish Actor and comedian JON KENNY who was part of the Irish comic duo d’Unbelievables with Pat Shortt joins Mary to complete the cast. Kenny is also best known outside Ireland for appearing in the Channel 4 sitcom Father Ted.   Together they play a myriad of characters in this hilarious and earthy dramatic comedy.

The play follows the efforts of Dicky Mick Dicky O Connor to make matches for the lonely and lovelorn.  Keane, an avid observer of people and the cultures that bind and create their view of the world uses “The Matchmaker” as an exploration of rural loneliness. Aware that generations of people became masters of their own destinies late in life, and only then began to look for companionship and love, once their duties as minder of aging parents were concluded or they had finally inherited, or were the left over brother or sister. 

Using his inimitable way with words and his one sense of “devilment” and wit, Keane delves into the longings, hungers, fears and foibles of this collection of lonely county people and creates a marvelously colorful world, taking us back to a simpler time, when phones were few and far between and the only web was one left behind by spiders.

The show is directed by Michael Scott

The Blindboy Podcast Live

The Blindboy Podcast Live

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY 14th SEPT FROM 10am

Blindboy's increased notability away from his band Rubberbandits, has allowed for him to explore wider avenues and create perhaps outrageously mind-altering brainchildren which can only be described as courageous, yet bonkers.

With a number one selling book under his belt and a podcast that has reached interest not only in Ireland but internationally, the satirist could possibly single-handedly change people's mind set on mental health and the deafening stigma it surrounds.

Outspoken, informed and empathetic, Blindboy engages his audience with an unusual touch of realism. There is a very authentic feeling of "freedom" he exhumes which allows his listeners and participants to openly speak their mind without judgement and no topic off limits - certainly an air of belonging encircling the space you find yourself in when listening or in company of Blindboy.

His latest innovative creation, The Blindboy podcast espouses mental health issues but reaches further into an eclectic spectrum of current topics from gun laws to feminism, racism or a bit of history. Blindboy has it covered.

His uncanny ability to articulate what nearly everyone is thinking is unparalleled and something that is sorely needed in Irish society. - The Daily Edge
