“It’s The Real McCoy” a Tommy Marren Play




Ten years ago ‘It’s The Real McCoy’ hit the stage for the first time and became a phenomenal success across Ireland, the UK and America.  Tommy Marren brings this hilarious 3-act comedy to Claremorris Town Hall Theatre this August, 26th, in aid of Claremorris Red Cross.

Set in rural Ireland in the cottage of Madge Molly it’s simply hilarious!  With dozens of funny one-liners and numerous twists and turns, Madge has to contend with nosey neighbours, a gormless postman who wants to marry her only daughter, a priest with a tale of her past and a wayward husband who wants to meet her to explain why he vanished without trace almost 40 years ago!  Experience the confusion and the comedy as ‘Its The Real McCoy’ plays Claremorris Town Hall Theatre as part of its 10th Anniversary Tour of Ireland.  Written and directed by Tommy Marren.

Deirdre O’Kane – “Demented”

Claremorris Town Hall Theatre Presents:

Deirdre O’Kane – “Demented”

(Support Act to be announced)

Saturday, 15th October 

Doors: 7.00pm | Show: 8.00pm | Full Bar


The last few years have been something of a whirlwind for Deirdre O’Kane.  A co-founder of Comic Relief in Ireland, she fronted the critically and audience acclaimed RTÉ Does Comic Relief.  She recently fronted her own talk show – Deirdre O’Kane Talks Funny – in the prime-time Saturday night slot on RTÉ One and debuted a brand new stand up comedy series, The Deirdre O’Kane Show, with Sky Comedy. 

Deirdre also appeared as a judge alongside Boy George, Aston Merrygold and Vogue Williams on the new Fox-developed talent show, The Big Deal, for Virgin Media Television. She is also known as the voice of smash-hit Gogglebox (Virgin Media) which returned for a seventh season in late 2021. In recent years she has hosted the revamped IFTA Film & Drama Awards (for RTÉ and Virgin Media), and reached the finals of the national broadcaster’s fan-favourite Dancing with the Stars.

One of Ireland’s favourite comedians, Deirdre never strays too far from her live stand-up roots; and will bring her new show, Demented, a box-fresh hour of side splitting laughs, to Claremorris Town Hall Theatre on Saturday, 15th October. 



Danny O’ Brien: The God Of All Things Bad


Claremorris Town Hall Theatre Presents:

Danny O’ Brien: The God Of All Things Bad

with support from Barry Hopkins

Saturday, 9th April

Doors: 7.00pm | Show: 8.00pm | Bar Service


After a complete sell-out run with his show ‘Reformer’ in early 2020 in Claremorris Town Hall Theatre and nationwide – O’ Brien is back in Mayo with his biggest solo show to date!

The award-winning Irish comedian has stayed even busier over the last 18 months. From making one of the highest viewed stand-up specials in Irish television history (Recorded outdoors in a block of Dublin council flats during the first lockdown!) To somehow spending 3 months stranded in Central America. Along the way, he starred in a viral Spanish comedy sketch video in Costa Rica (a language he still hasn’t been able to learn and definitely still can’t speak!) amongst other things.

This show follows his ridiculous journey over land and water to meet the highly worshipped Mayan deity that is ‘Maximón’ in Guatemala.. (and gives this show its name!) He also now has a dog daughter and trust issues with drinking water and Zoom.

*WARNING: This show contains strong descriptions of psychedelic drug misuse, parasites, and goat milking.


★★★★★ “O’Brien is genuinely, uproariously funny with a huge stage presence and wicked timing!” – The Sunday Independent 

★★★★★ “O’ Brien took to the stage like a force of nature…one suspects it won’t be too much longer before stadiums come calling” – The Examiner
