Derek Mooney with his unique mix of conversation, information, advice and entertainment



The eighth concert in our hugely successful series of concerts entitled MOONEY TUNES will take place at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre on the evening of Sunday, March 24.

Tickets will go on sale on Monday, February 25, from 3.oo p.m. and they are priced very reasonably, as always, between €14.50 and €39.50. They will be on sale through Ticketmaster, and there will be a booking fee added on.

HOWEVER, if you DON'T want to pay a booking fee, you can go down to the box office at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre on Monday 25th, and buy your tickets directly from there.

ALSO, if you are going in a group of six or more, you can avoid a booking fee by ringing the group bookings line at the theatre. That number is 01-6777999.

Alternatively, if you don't live in Dublin, and can't get to the theatre, do get onto Ticketmaster as soon as possible after the tickets go on sale.

We anticipate a huge demand for these tickets, so please stay tuned for further details.
