A Fairytale of the Pogues: A Tribute by The Rapparees

Thursday December 21, 2023
The Raparrees present their festive tribute to the Pogues
Show Date & Time:
Thursday December 21, 8:00pm
Ticket Price:

€25 (inclusive of booking fee)

The Rapparees return to Letterkenny bringing their festive homage to the Pogues to An Grianan Theatre, join us on Thursday the 21st December to kick the Christmas season off with a bang.

Being on tour as support to Shane MacGowan & the Popes early on in the life of the Rapparees galvanised their appreciation and understanding of their musical heroes, already evident in the fact the band are named from a lyric in Terry Woods’ ‘Young Ned of the Hill’.

The set is woven exactly as expected, between the madness and genius of Shane’s song writing, Spider’s driving whistle/beer tray and the meandering melodies of James Fearnley on accordion.

Expect to hear all the hits – A Rainy Night in Soho, Streams of Whiskey, Sally Maclennane, If I should Fall from Grace with God, The Body of an American and of course, the Fairytale itself!
