Description

Local band The Mackerel Eaters are searching for their inspiration and motivation in the cultural graveyard of ambition, Galway City. The lads’ lives revolve around music and fishing, (for gigs and mackerel!), but hedonism and hare-brained schemes override their art. Sure they’ve got soul, but they'd sell every screed of it for a gig! Desperation breeds desperate invention. The Mackerel Eaters serve up a slice of madness, mayhem and insightful storytelling, interwoven with superb musical interludes.

We went to see these chaps by chance and oh did we not regret it! The plot and characters grew and grew over the show with funny scenes that we are still quoting now. They included the audience brilliantly and we felt like we had 3 mates we want to have a pint with. Laughs all around, one of the best shows we’ve seen at the fringe.

Really funny show, these blokes have some great energy! Reminds me of an unhinged, Irish Flight of the Conchords (sans the parody songs). A little bit of clever audience participation too!
