Irish Gig of the Week: The Mary Wallopers

Words: Dylan Murphy

Jack Daniel’s and District share an authentic love for music culture and we thought who better to team up with to celebrate the return of live music. Every week, we’re handpicking the must attend show in the capital, ranging from underground rappers in dimly lit rooms to rising stars on sold out tours.

Two years ago, most of us were scratching our heads working out what the hell was going on and how COVID would affect the industry. Meanwhile, The Mary Wallopers, unfazed by the seismic changes coming our way, built an entire bar in the gaff and preempted the new normal by livestreaming a St Patrick’s Day performance.

The shows became synonymous with the Dundalk duo and after a Halloween show, they invited the likes of CMAT, Darragh Lynch (Lankum) and more for unfogettable experiences. 

As amazing as they were, nothing quite matches up to in-person gigs and with restrictions lifted the time is right to see the trio in the flesh.

The Mary Wallopers play Vicar Street on Thursday 17 March, click here for tickets.
