It is already being hailed as one of the funniest new Irish comedy plays and with two of MidWest Radios presenters taking lead roles the word is out! Following sell out shows in Mayo, Sligo, Leitrim and performances in the USA, Its The Real McCoy comes to Galway.

Set in rural Ireland in the mid 1960s, its main character is Madge Mulloy who has spent over 40 years of her life in despair following the disappearance of her husband for no apparent reason. What unfolds on stage has to be seen to be believed. The new parish curate Fr. Michael McCoy gets news about her husband Tom and his wishes to return to her to explain why he left. However, Madge has to contend with the fact that her only child Maura has fallen in love with the local postman Martin Daly and she doesnt approve.
