When I die I hope my mourners will hear and enjoy this performance.
Enjoy a taster of this unique Irish Trad Show – the Wonders of the Wake – which celebrates the ancient rite of Irish Wake.

Sad, comical, tearful, laughter-filled, sexy and compelling the Wonders of the Wake Show is the best Irish Wake you’ll ever get to this side of Heaven!
There is song, poetry, lament, beautiful musicians from Mayo, jigs and reels even a bit of Yeats and Homer!
