Whale Theatre is ready to help the people of Greystones celebrate St Patrick's Day, with a performance by 'The Navvies' on Sunday, March 17, at 7 p.m. The Navvies are one of Ireland's best folk groups, named for the Irish men who built railways.

Playing songs that shook off another hard day's graft, The Navvies celebrate the Irish working man's life and times, with ballads about loved ones back home, about the search for a better life, and about the country that they loved so well.

With Daniel, Paul, Barry and Patrick - aka The Navvies - recognising all the greats of Irish traditional music - from Brendan Behan to Ronnie Drew, from The Chieftains to The Pogues - there's no better way to wrap up your Paddy's Day than gathering around and singing along to the songs that roused a nation, again and again.

They hope that audience members will raise their own voices and sing along for the night that's in it.

Expect songs by The Dubliners, The Saw Doctors, The Wolfe Tones and many more.

Tickets are available at whaletheatre.ie or call the booking office on 01 2010550.
