The characters include people scouring the county for tickets, wives who are not happy that their husbands are going to the match and staying over night, pundits who try to predict what the outcome might be, blow in’s who have no interest in the match and chancers who are trying to make a few pound from the event. The play is an edgy and humerous look at the whole weekend and its effect on the Kingdom is presented by The Group Theatre Tralee and is written by Mike O Halloran from Ballyduff.
