Copper Face Jacks returns to the stage and is hitting Limerick for the first time at the University Concert Hall from Tuesday, July 26 to Saturday, July 30.
The show will be full of craic, huge laughs, Culchies, Dubs, lots of shifting, and an incredible cast, and is set to be the show of the summer for the third time!
From ‘Ross O’Carroll Kelly’ creator Paul Howard, Copper face jacks is a love story set on the eve of a Dublin v Kerry All Ireland Final, when a sweet Kerry girl ends up falling head over her flat-shoes for Captain of the Dublin football team, Gino Wildes.
Having received standing ovations, rave reviews and wall-to-wall belly laughs at its shenanigans for its previous two runs, now it’s time for Limerick audiences to laugh out loud to see if love can conquer all as the two sweethearts face massive cultural and linguistic hurdles on their road to happiness/Croker as Copper Face Jacks returns!
Johnny Ward returns as Gino Wildes, Stephen O’Leary (fair City) returns as Mossy Munnix with Rachel O’Connell (Young Offenders), with Daithi O’Donnell (Ros na Rún), Shane Fallon, Kelly Marie Ni Cheallaigh, and introducing Sarah Gordon as Noeleen Níc Gearailt.
