A big thanks to all who came out to support The Nualas this year at our gigs, it was a bumper crop of great shows and venues. It’s been an amazing 2016, I can’t remember a better year for work, gigs, and voice coaching opportunities. I have to say a big thanks to the audiences, workshop participants, and voice coaching clients that I’ve had the privilege to work with this year. I feel very blessed indeed and want to remember a quote that was given to me at the beginning of this year:
‘There comes a time in life when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. Surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short for anything else. Falling down is part of life; getting back up is living.’
Thank you and see you next year in 2017! Love, light, and music, M.xxx
It is our distinct pleasure to finish our Glitterbomb Tour at one of our favourite Irish venues this Friday, November 25th, the Civic Theatre in Tallaght. Come one, come all, and help us to raise the roof and celebrate our 21st Birthday Party in style. Book tickets here, don’t miss out, it’s our last gig for 2016!
We’re heading South this weekend to Briary Gap Theatre in Macroom for the first time on Friday, November 18th to give it loads. And once again we’ll be jetting in for one-night-only to Wexford Opera House to raise the roof this Saturday, November 19 with our penultimate Glitterbomb Tour show. Placido Domingo says he’s hoping to pop down, he loves our Requiem Mass in Dm for the water charges and will be singing in a verse or two. We are giddy with anticipation! Come down for the craic, stay for the comedy musical extravaganza. It’s win-win. Don’t miss out, book tickets here for Wexord and here for Briary Gap.
We’re heading down to lovely Bray this weekend for a crackin’ night at our favourite seaside venue The Mermaid Arts Centre on Saturday, November 5th. Paul Costello designed these dresses. Auntie Lizzie modelled them for us, there’s a bang of Bette Midler off her big time. She’s threatening to come down in full mermaid regalia so don’t miss it. Spot prize to the best seafaring costume! See ye there…
So good to be back in the Spiegeltent! My spiritual home ? Rockin’ it in Galway at the Vodafone Galway Comedy Carnival this pass weekend with The Nualas, pain killers at the ready, Lidocaine is go!
Galway, here we come! The Nualas are heading West this month to the @vodafonecomedycarnival in Galway and Westport for a couple of crackin’ gigs.

Come one, come all! Nuala has even bought a new hat. Gotta have that fry up after a weekend on the lash.
