The nine foot loveable rascal Big Rory is back with his amorous and incontinent dog Ochie, his wayward mongrel. Inevitably there’s total confusion as the mutt careers around, peeing on lamp posts and heaven knows what else, with Rory in hot pursuit trying to contain the chaos. They are full of surprises!
“Don't believe a word you've heard about Big Rory and the team - they are much better!! The most professional, hilarious, wonderful act we have ever had. Loved by everyone, they brought the town to a standstill... never boring and constantly evolving... an event organisers dream booking”.
-Greystones Festival, Eire.
