The play, written by Tommy Marren and which premiered in January 2012, has been a huge success with sold-out venues across the country for practically every performance.

'The Real McCoy' is set in the kitchen of Madge Molloy, a 68-year old woman who has lived over 40 years of her life wondering why her husband Tom – whom she was married to for just five months – mysteriously disappeared without trace or reason.

Madge was expecting her only child at the time of Tom's disappearance and she has grown to be a bitter and angry woman. Her daughter Maura constantly yearns to know what happened to her father and the arrival of a new curate in the parish, namely Father Michael McCoy, is about to throw some light on the reasons behind Tom's hasty departure.

This rip-roaring comedy is full of classic Irish 'one-liners' that will have you in stitches and the fact that Madge happens to have the two nosiest neighbours in Ireland doesn't help.

Tickets, priced €18, concessions €15, are available from the Town Hall box office. Tel (042) 9392919.
