‘It’s the Real McCoy’ at Mahon’s Hotel

The Real McCoy Drumragh Players

Nora O’Hora (J.R. Crystal) and Madge Molloy (Angela McNabb) are pulled apart by their family members Cora O’Hora (Gretta Gallagher), Maura Molloy (Edel Connolly) and her fiance Martin Daly (Sean Connolly) during a scene from the Drumragh Players “The Real McCoy”.

“It’s the Real McCoy” is a riot of fun; brilliantly funny yet serious and even sad in parts.

With glimpses of John B Keane and characterisations of the Fr Ted and Mrs Doyle genre… it will have the audience in tears of laughter for over two hours.

This will be a night not to be forgotten and will be live entertainment at its best.

A super nights theatre.

The play is set in the kitchen of Madge Molloy a woman in her sixties who has lived over 40 years of her life wondering why her husband Tom – whom she was married to for just a few months – mysteriously disappeared without trace or reason.

Madge was expecting her only child when Tom disappeared and she has grown to be a bitter and angry woman.

Her daughter Maura constantly yearns to know what happened to her father and the arrival of a new curate in the parish is about to throw some light on the reasons behind Tom’s hasty disappearance.

This rip-roaring comedy is full of classic Irish “one liners” that will have you in stitches and the fact that Madge happens to have the two nosiest neighbours in Ireland doesn’t help! Nora O’Hora and her daughter Cora have a knack of popping up at the most inappropriate moments as Madge tries to keep a lid on what is going on.

To add to the confusion Madge’s daughter Maura has fallen in love with the local postman but Madge does not approve and she does her best to convince Maura that she would be much better off without having a man in her life!

The play is set over two frantic days and realising that her husband is back in the parish Madge has some difficult decisions to make.

The question is does she make the right decision in the end?

This is rip-roaring comedy at its best, a combination of high drama and amazing Irish wit that will bring you on a nostalgic trip. Clanabogan Drama Circle’s Production of “It’s the Real McCoy” written by Tommy Marren is a must – see show.
