Dolan’s are delighted to announce that Christmas with Judy O Connor will be taking place on Sunday, December 19.

“I am so looking forward to being back this year for my 9th Christmas with Judy O Connor Supper Club Special after a Covid break in 2020,” Judy said.

The annual festive evening will begin with a 2-course meal followed by entertainment with Judy and well-known pianist Aiden Boland.

Judy said, “My set will bring a drizzle of musical theatre, a splash of contemporary, and a big dollop of Christmas cheer. I’m delighted also, to welcome up-and-coming soloist, Kate Ryan as my special guest. Kate comes from a very talented family of singers. Brothers Stephen and Conor, both, professional singers, have guested with me over the years.”

Judy O’Connor is a well-known name in Limerick and has had a long and distinguished career. She has worked with the likes of Le Groupe, Limerick Musical Society and the Cecilian Musical Society where she has been a leading lady on productions including ‘Sweet Charity’, ‘Pajama Game’, ‘Show Boat’, ‘Mack ‘N Mabel’, ‘Anything Goes’ and ‘Cabaret’.

The Association of Irish Musical Societies has recognised her twice, awarding her the Best Comedienne award for her work on ‘Hot Mikado and Best Supporting Actress in ‘Copacabana’, a role which she performed for Limerick Musical Society.

As well as being involved in musicals, Judy was a member of the Granary Players for several years and won a Joint Actress Award for the play ‘Shakers’ on the 3 Act Festival Circuit.

It was during her time with Granary Players that Judy met Margaret Hough where their combined love of theatre and performance led them to set up the Spotlight Stage School. The success of Spotlight has enabled thousands of young Limerick performers to tread the boards for the first time.

Tickets for Christmas with Judy O Connor are sold in tables of 4 or 6, with 1 ticket admitting 4 people or 1 ticket admitting 6. 

“So mark those calendars for Sunday, December 19. You won’t be disappointed,” Judy said.
