McHugh's big gigs

McHugh's Barrel Venue is delighted to announce that 2 of Ireland's most exciting rock tribute acts will be taking to the legendary Cord Road stage for Yuletide 2019.

First up on Friday 27th December are METALLITIA, the gig that all of Drogheda has been waiting for when the local heroes play one of their rare live shows.

They became Drogheda and national heroes when they won RTE's inaugural Reality Rock Show, Karl Spain Wants To Rock, run over 5 weeks on RTE 2, back in 2010, which saw them win a place on the headlining bill for Europe's top tribute festival Glastonbudget in England.

They are Flash on vocals and guitar, Richie McScrumpy on lead guitar, Paddy Levins on bass guitar and Jimmy Brennan on drums.

Then on Monday 30th December, PEARL JEM, who are now hardy festive regulars at McHugh's at Christmas time. The boys last played here on the same night last Xmas and rocked the place to the rafters in front of a frenetic, capacity audience.

The doors for both gigs open at 9pm, and 'top top' nights are guaranteed!

Tickets are on sale at and the venue for both gigs and great crowds are expected.
