Summer Shift


This morning.

Harcourt Street, Dublin 2

The cast of Copper Face Jacks: The Musical in and out of costume celebrate their Olympia Theatre extension – “extra summer shows have been added due to phenomenal public demand”.

Packed full of “craic, huge laughs, culchies, Dubs and lots of shifting” the musical will return to the Olympia Theatre from July 10 until August 10. From left: Roseanna Purcell , Michele McGrath, Johnny Ward, Rachel O’Connell and Kelly Marie Ni Cheallaigh.

    Polyester GAA shirts.

    I presume there is some rural swamp where they are considered attractive.

      “I presume there is some rural swamp where they are considered attractive.”

      Yes, it’s called “The rest of Ireland”

    This is terrible and I apologise but yer wan in the Galway jersey looks like she’s about to poo in her own hand.

      Both Galway and Tipp are trying to mount the Dub I think. Nothin’ worth their efforts back in the homeland I take it. I will never understand the level of ‘reality’ these photoshoots are aiming for.

      ah bless
      ironically to carve a bronze/ copper statue in French is slang for taking a poo

    Was in the place once, some work night out years ago.

    Grand place if drunken morons (and I mean absolutely hammered off their skulls barely able to stand drunk) and the smell of vomit and harpic is your thing.

    Suffice to say, I have never been back. It gets way too much exposure in the media, but then this is Ireland the media are generally parodies of themselves.

      Why would you say that the single most popular nightclub in Ireland gets too much exposure in the media Ian-o?

      REALLY sounds like ye didn’t get the shift alright.

      1. Ian-O

        No, I didn’t get ‘the shift’.

        No way to dress that one up without making me sound plaintive.

    It’s official, skinny jeans is a male country thing now. You could have legs like tree trunks and an ass like the back of a bus but, low waist spray on skinny jeans all the way.

    I blame Nathan Carter myself.

      1. SOQ

        I’d take boot cut any day.

        Is a pair of jeans which don’t restrict your stride and show your builders bum too much to ask?

      2. rotide

        I feckin hate skinny jeans. I’m waiting patiently for boot cut to return. A lot easier to wear

      3. Termagant

        But bootcut is the king of jeans

        Autocorrect chaned jeans to heaven there and that’s not far off either

      So entertaining you told us twice.Is this another Paul Howard production? You couldn’t drag me to one.

      1. rotide

        Yeah I did and Yeah it is.

        Horses for courses. I’m sure I’m not partcularly entertained by the stuff you like.
