Limavady will come alive with costumed characters as they recreate the history of
Danny Boy. Why not join our guided tour and take a journey into the history of the

The Danny Boy Festival headline act for 2013 is the highly acclaimed Four Men & A Dog.

traditional Irish music with a wide spectrum of other genres, including rap, Southern
rock, jazz, blues, bluegrass, polka, country swing, and even salsa.
Heather, David and Deirdre's music consists of Irish and
Scottish traditional tunes, a mix of reels, jigs and slow airs and
a blend of flute, fiddle and guitar.
The History Of The Troubles (accordin' to my Da) is a fast frenetic, hilarouis laugh-a-minute comedy - yes, a comedy by Martin Lynch and Grimes & McKee - set against the last 34 years of the Northern Ireland troubles. It tells the story of how the troubles affected one ordinary Belfast man, Rolling Stones fan Gerry Courtney. Gerry's story begins on the outbreak of the first day of the troubles - 14th August 1969 - in the History Of The Troubles (accordin' to my Da) the waiting room of the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast. He is expecting the birth of his first child, while just outside the hospital windows, parts of the city are going up in flames. Gerry's life will never be the same again. The play, starring Conor Grimes, Alan McKee and Ivan Little, takes us though Gerry's struggle to retain his sanity against the chaos created by such epic events as Internment, Bloody Sunday, no-go barricades, the Loyalist Workers' Strike, the Hunger Strikes, sectarian tensions, Bill Clinton's visit and the ceasefires. Along the way we meet some of the maddest, baddest, funniest characters Belfast has ever known, such as, Fireball the nutty hospital porter, Maggie Morrelli the 69-year-old hijacker Goon, and many, many more. You will never think of the Northern Ireland troubles again without wanted to laugh out loud.
