Celebrating 21 years in the Business, The Nualas are funnier and glitzier than ever.  They tour to The Civic this November , as part of their Glitterbomob Tour.

We chatted with them in advance of their gig here on 25th November.


Tell us about your background in Showbusiness?

Nuala One: ran away with the circus.

Nuala Two: ran away with the mobile library.

Nuala Three: just ran away.


What do you wish someone had told you when you were starting out?

Never cross Twink, never take up Red Hurley on his offer of a sandwich and never touch Finbarr Furey’s flute without asking him first.


How did the Nualas come about?

Somebody said to us once when we were seven, ‘You want fame? Well fame costs. And here is where you start paying for it. In sweat. I want to see sweat.’ And we said, ‘Mr. Dolan we only came for a pound of butter and three cans of Fanta.’


If you hadn’t been in showbusiness, what would you have done?

Nuala One: Phlebotomist

Nuala Two: Equine Dentist

Nuala Three: Sommelier to the stars.


Have you ever had an embarrassing moment on stage?

No, we couldn’t give a shite.


What can audiences expect from The Glitterbomb Tour?

Chat, craic, cleavage, sequins, stolen flutes (don’t tell Finbarr), vocal dexterity, ambidextrous posturing and overall a mind expanding evening of entertainment.


And finally, what was the last TV show you binge-watched? How many episodes did you see in a sitting?

Nationwide. We’re watching it as we speak. 10, 000 to go. Cramping with excitement!
The Nualas, Friday 25th  November, 8pm, Civic Theatre Tallaght.
