Clare fans urged to Banner Up for Copperface Jack’s: The Musical


CLARE fans planning on heading to Copper Face Jacks: The Musical at University Concert Hall Limerick are being urged to don the Saffron and Blue on opening night this week.

UCH is encouraging the audience members to wear their county colours on Tuesday July 26 for the show starting at 8pm and with the production being in Limerick, fans of the All-Ireland champions will no doubt need little encouragement.

“While much of our audience will be supporting the Limerick hurling team in the green and white, we are encouraging jerseys and county colours from every county,” said a spokesperson for UCH.

They explained the storyline of the show, written by the renowned Paul Howard, lends itself to the GAA celebrations currently taking place.

“This comedy musical is about love blossoming on the eve of a Dublin v Kerry All-Ireland Final, when a sweet Kerry girl ends up falling for the Captain of the Dublin football team in the famous Copper Face Jacks nightclub in Dublin.”

The cast include Fiona O’Carroll (Mrs Brown’s Boys) as Gretchen Akerman, Johnny Ward who returns as Gino Wildes, Stephen O’Leary (Fair City) back as Mossy Munnix with Rachel O’Connell (Young Offenders), Daithi O’Donnell (Ros na Rún), Shane Fallon, Kelly Marie Ni Cheallaigh and introducing Sarah Gordon as Noeleen Níc Gearailt.

Copper Face Jacks: The Musical runs at University Concert Hall, Limerick July 26– 30.
