-Before her.

-He was her da?

-I think so, yeah.  Grandda maybe.  Anyway, they found him.

Roddy Doyle’s hilarious and provocative Two Pints started as a conversation on Facebook. Now it’s a play. And it is coming to a number of pubs in Galway City and county.

Two men meet for a pint.

They talk about their Da’s, death, Nigella, North Korea, the afterlife…

Pull up a stool and listen in as they chew the fat and set the world to rights...
