Liam is a former Gaelic games correspondent of the Irish Independent, and creator of the popular Championship Man series on RTE Radio One. John is a well-known poet who has performed a number of readings in this region.
The Pull is a lively comedy based on an “unreal real event that may or not have taken place in rural Ireland,” according to Liam. It is set in the fictional town of Ballybore, where, bizarrely, the local GAA club claim to pre-date the foundation of the GAA by some 130 years.
“It’s about a GAA club that runs into some financial trouble, but it’s not nearly as big a deal as they think. Basically, Ballybore GAA Club is only €1,000 in debt but it feels like €1m to the main people involved in the club. They set about trying to solve the problem and decide to pull a truck around their home town to raise money and get themselves in the Guinness Book of Records. Chaos ensues and they end up getting in way over their heads”, explained Liam.
In the midst of the panic and the cack-handed attempts at fundraising, there are a number of other sub-plots for the audience to enjoy. The Pull is suitable for all ages.
