Finn Harps are inviting the public to join them for a night at the Balor Theatre this Tuesday the 16th October 8pm where the popular comedy “The Island Wake” will be shown again following excellent reviews with proceeds going to the Harps.

The play is a captivating and imaginative comedy based on island life, its personalities and circumstances.

As a child, Fergus Cleary paid many visits to the island off the west coast of Ireland where his mother was born and reared. Without electricity (until 1999!) the island was a unique place. Islanders made their own entertainment with the art of song and storytelling a treasured skill.

In Fergus’s new play The Island Wake, he recalls an island paradise with beaches on both Northern and Southern sides, free from traffic and such dangers. Fergus takes these memories and, along with the many humorous stories and saying from the Island folk, deftly weaves them into a captivating tale of Island life and wit.

The end result is a unique comedy at once funny, entertaining and nostalgic that will stay with you long after the final curtain.

Tickets are €12/€15 and can be booked by phoning the Balor Theatre on 074-9131840 or book online at
