The North – We Love It!

26 Jan

We love Northern Ireland, the way they speak, the cuisine, all those gorgeous, hunky men… we didn’t call this show ‘Lock Up Your Husbands’ for nothing.  We can’t wait to get to The Market Place Theatre in Armagh on February 7th to kick things off for our Spring tour.  Last time we were there Nuala had one too many wines and partied all night with the local fire department at Le Roc disco.  How she ended up with a tattoo of Gerry Adams on her arse we’ll never know.  Look out Armagh, we’re comin’!

RTE and Irish Times this week, whew.

14 Jan

We’re hot on the trail of doing all our PR for our upcoming Spring 2015 tour.  Tomorrow we’re descending on RTE for the afternoon, recording all kinds of things for various radio programs.  One radio program took exception to our song about buying babies on Ebay so we sang one about hacking off limbs and general violence and lots of bloodshed.  They seemed fine with that.  Whew!


Helloooooo 2015!

10 Jan

Yep, it’s January 2015 already and we’re hard at work on our new show ‘Lock Up Your Husbands!’ that kicks off February 7th at The Market Place Theatre in Armagh.  Get yer skates on and tell all your nearest and dearest up the North that we’ll be coming to paint the town red and peddle our finest wares, sporting new hair.  RTE is even getting into the act, cheers lads!

Tragedy strikes over bird brew-ha-ha

1 Dec

It was a tricky time in the USA this Thanksgiving when a shortage of turkeys caused a major panic as the holiday loomed last week.  Turkey growers got a bit complacent this year and decided to grow lettuce instead of growing more turkeys.  As a result, there was a rush on turkeys at all the local grocery stores last Wednesday and way too much salad.  Unfortunately, Nuala’s little niece Imelda decided to show off her new turkey costume when they went to the shops to get creamed corn and she was besieged by crazed customers looking for turkey of some kind.  They were so crazy to get a bird that they only realized Imelda was a little girl when she socked them on the nose and told them to feck-off.   Nuala was so proud.

Thanksgiving Day Turkey, baby…..

27 Nov

We want to send Nuala all our best wishes as she spends Thanksgiving Day in America.   She was really worried about bringing a gift until she found out that no one gives gifts on Thanksgiving.  They just sit around and eat turkey and watch football all day and then eat loads of pies and sweets and get really drunk.  She thinks they call it Thanksgiving because everyone’s really thankful that they don’t remember what they said and did on the day and so they don’t have to apologize for anything.  Kind of like our Christmas.

Nuala was at a friend’s house and the cat attacked the turkey thinking it was still alive and it could kill it.  The cat attacked Nuala instead when she went for a drumstick and she ended up in A&E.  But we’re sure she’ll still be able to fly tomorrow and make our gig in Birr Arts Centre this Saturday Nov. 29th though in Co. Offaly!  Hurrah for medical science!  See you all there…

Full Irish, please!

30 Oct

There’s nothing like a full Irish, is there?  Nuala was looking for a Halloween costume and was so excited when she found just what she was looking for the other night.  We were at a launch of Galtee meat products and this lady came up to us.  We couldn’t believe our luck.  Just as we thought we were going to faint from the hunger waiting for the amuse bouche to come, a full Irish breakfast walked right into us.  Nuala was overjoyed, but found everything slightly waxy tasting.

Catch us in Longford at The Backstage Theatre this Sat. November 1st.  First 50 people get a full Irish breakfast! (while supplies last…)


Go on, ye good thing, ye.

22 Oct

We thought we’d dress up and have the craic with some head gear.  Nuala found this little gem and ordered 3 the other day.  This marks a foray into our happy mode and a tribute to all our GCN brethren and sistren, along with Nuala’s 6-year old who made it.  We’ll be launching our head-gear range along with out perfumes for the Christmas market.  Nuala also has a brand new range of knickers so watch this space…..

Catch us in The Set venue in Kilkenny tomorrow night 23rd October, check it out here

and we’ll be in Tralee in Siamse Tire on Sat. 25th October so check that out too!
