In 1966, Joe Welch, a skipper, sails into dingle harbour with a very unusual catch... What follows is a bizarre series of events involving a publican with a biscuit tin, Eamon de Valera, Queen Elizabeth and some nuns. Red Fox Theatre Company brings you a true story. Using verbatim accounts from those closest to the tale we bring you a piece of storytelling the likes of which you've rarely seen. Expect live music, beer, great craic and some poor bloke dressed up as a fish. One fish can make a big splash!
