Catch of the Day

Red Fox Theatre

One fish can make a big splash.

Ireland, 1966. Joe Welch, a skipper, sails into Dingle Bay with a very unusual catch…

What follows is a ridiculous series of events involving Eamon De Valera, Queen Elizabeth and a whole lot of nuns. An unbelievable true story, Catch of The Day, is a raucous, ‘side-splittingly funny’ (The Irish Post *****) and little bit-political play with live trad-inspired music, all set in a Dingle pub.

Following It’s award nominated Edinburgh Fringe run, critically acclaimed sell out UK Tour Catch of The Day, visits Dublin for the first time.
