A One-Man Show
by Award Winning Actor, Comedian and Poet,
Bar open 7pm
Everyone has a soundtrack to their lives and Owen O’Neill decided to have a think about what songs were important to him and why? He takes the audience on a journey using ten songs which have been integral to the most tragic, comic and joyful moments of his life. Losing his virginity aged 15 to the local bank managers wife and being interrupted by the IRA. How he went on an acid trip and had a fight with four Garden Gnomes. Singing a very inappropriate song in front of the Bishop of Derry.

He has appeared in five feature films including Michael Collins Mickybo and Me and The General.
