New Play Celebrates the Arrival of Punk Rock in Lisdoonvarna

We went back in time to North Clare in the late 1970s during today’s show.

‘The Only Punk Rocker in the Village’ is the story of how a teenager’s discovery of Punk Rock turns his life upside down and causes consideration, shock and misunderstanding with his parents, his community and his friends. The setting for this play is in the village of Lisdoonvarna, where a tight-knit, conservative, traditional based community is invaded by this new foreign phenomenon Punk Rock. Dermott Petty, playwright, joined Gavin on air to chat about his new play, ‘The Only Punk Rocker in the Village’ which takes place on October 26th & 27th at the Royal Spa Hotel in Lisdoonvarna.
