Ah feckit all! Jack is a disgruntled Irish tour guide trying to keep his head above water while in danger of losing his home. By day he sells ‘Brand Ireland’ to tourists from far and wide with enchanting tales of ceol and craic; by night, he faces the threat of eviction from his chronically damp Capel Street flat, feeling the floor falling from under his feet, with no hope of escape.
Welcome To Ireland – Meltdown of an Irish Tour Guide is too topical for comfort, confronting Ireland’s rental crisis and how one man battles to keep afloat in a city sinking under greed. A story told with humour, passion, truth and a comically unfiltered mind.
