We arrived at our accommodation in Edinburgh yesterday. We knew it wasn’t going to be luxury but the pictures were a bit different on the website. @AssemblyFest #nualasdoed @MariaTecce
Oh, jeez, thanks so much for the crowd that came down the airport today to see us off as we boarded the plane for Edinburgh! We felt a wee bit under dressed when we saw ye all, but so excited and taken completely by surprise at such a send off!
We’ll knock one out of the park for Ireland, lads. Tell all your nearest and dearest who’ll be at the festival or in Scotland that we’re gonna give it loads at the show every night! Yiiiii – haaaahhhhhhhhhhhh! Edinburgh, here we come….. book here!
Nuala went to Spain for some last minute inspiration for our Spanish costumes for ‘Manolo’. We tried to get excited about them but they chafed something awful. Then Nuala got mistaken for a Mexican piñata and got chased down the street by a gang of children trying to hit her with sticks. She threw candy at them which slowed them down, but she now has a phobia of all pop-out celebratory decorations.
Off to play the Vodafone Comedy Festival tonight, hurrah! Get yer skates on and come on down, we’re on at 9:30 pm and it’s a great lineup. See ye’s down there for a pint after, we’ll be on the gin & tonics…..
Here’s our cousin Mary Francis being crowned Agricultural Queen of the Farmers Festival in 1977. Boy, she got around just great in the wheelchair and put us all to shame at the ball that night. She was rollin’ around on the dance floor with Father Pat like a good thing and only rolled over his feet once. That takes skill, by jaysus. She’s comin’ to Edinburgh to help pass out flyers for the show, as she can cover a lot more ground than us with her wheels.
We caught this lot trying to pose as The Nualas and get a reservation at The Groucho club in London last weekend. They’re actually called The Sineads and are trying to nick all our gags and stuff. I don’t think they get that there’s only three of us. They’re from our home town of Clumdangen so we weren’t suprised they had a bit of trouble with the counting thing. Nuala thought there were four of us until she figured out what ‘trio’ meant.
