  • Same old same old.

    *sighs protractedly*

    Although Jarlath Regan and David O’Doherty have got the skills to pay the bills. Shame Barry Murphy isn’t actually doing a set.

    McSavage getting beaten to a pulp should be a thoroughly depressing spectacle.

    Jason Byrne was amazing last year and will definitely go to him this year again. Meh to the rest and and extra double “meh!” for Eleanor Tiernan.

    not a brilliant line-up this year.. Dave McSavage needs stringing up by the balls and beating with large sticks.
    Will probably only bother seeing Joe Rooney, and Kevin Gildea.
