Cobh Ramblers FC Host Comedy Night

By Claire O'Donoghue


On Friday, 14 September, Cobh Ramblers Football Club will host a comedy night fundraiser in aid of their Senior Team who are off to Derry to compete in their first National Cup Final on 16 September. The event will take place in the Commodore Hotel with doors opening at 8pm. Tickets are just €15 and can be purchased online at Eventbrite or by calling Ian at 083 3039922.


Host for the night is Andrew Ryan, a regular at the Edinburgh Comedy Fringe Festival (and also seen on Russell Howard's Good News). There are plenty of well-known names and faces of comedy including Shane Casey aka Billy Murphy from the Young Offenders and The Wind that Shakes the Barley, Kevin Gildea from Father Ted, and Patrick Murray one of the stars of the RTE award winning drama, Love/Hate.


Speaking with The East Cork Journal, Ian Ryan (Kitman and club committee PRO) said, “We’re really looking forward to travelling up and taking on Derry city. The team has worked very hard over the last 3 years and to see them now in the final of EA Sports Senior National League Cup for the first time is proof of that. They deserve to be there. The trip will cost from €4,000-5,000 and the fundraiser will be a great help. We’d like to thank everyone involved in the organisation of the event, from the Commodore Hotel to our MC Andrew and all the performers”.
