Grimes & McKee bringing St Mungo's GAA comedy back to Belfast

Grimes & McKee are back at the Lyric in Belfast next week with St Mungo’s Luganulk 2: The Umpire Strikes Back.

GRIMES & McKee are back at the Lyric in Belfast next week with a sequel to their GAA-themed comedy hit St Mungo's Luganulk, St Mungo's Luganulk 2: The Umpire Strikes Back.

Once officially the worst Gaelic football team in Ireland, St Mungo's have now turned everything around. They are climbing up the league, the Mini-Mungo's are blitzing blitzes all over Ulster and the new Ladies team is quickly gaining a reputation for being anything but ladylike on the pitch.

Plans for the club's centenary celebrations are in full swing when a clash of egos in the committee leads to that most Irish of problems – a split.

The good folk of Luganulk try to mediate, but before long they are embroiled in a vicious circle of internecine slagging and dirty looks at Mass.

To the joyous astonishment of their heartless next-door neighbours and ruthless enemies St Ergnot's, St Mungo's begin a war within themselves – a war with no winners. A war with only losers. A losers' war with no winners… only losers.

What they need is a hero. Someone to save the day. Someone to save St Mungo's. Again.

:: St Mungo's Luganulk 2: The Umpire Strikes Back is at the Lyric from September 26 to 30 at 8pm (Saturday matinee 2.45pm). Tickets priced £15/£12 available via Lyrictheatre.co.uk.
