The Wild Geese in NYC


The Wild Geese in NYC

Ah, the bright lights, the skirl of the bagpipes, the constant procession of Irish cultural events and diversions — all in the greatest Irish city in the world. . . . Come join The Wild Geese in New York City as we pursue and engage Irish culture throughout the metropolis’ byways and boreens. Many of The Wild Geese are based in metro New York, and we will seek out their events and venues, among others, to provide support for them and for Irish culture in the city, whether this be in Carnegie Hall or the Times Square subway platform. Join us, let us know what events you recommend we support and we will look to ‘rally the troops.’

Up and Coming for The Wild Geese in NYC!

An evening at the movies with The Wild Geese in NYC and The Yank!

A chairde, start gathering your friends: The 8th Annual Manhattan Film Festival will be screening The Yank, a farcical comedy satire at the Quad Cinema on Monday June 23 at 5 PM Eastern.

The Quad Cinema is located at 34 W.13th St # B, New York, NY.

Let's get together and show our support! Join us for dinner afterward at Central Bar, a brisk 10-minute walk way, at 109 East 9th Street. Info about that venue is available here.

The Yank, independently written, directed, and produced by WG member Sean Lackey, has been described as "Sideways meets The Hangover movie with an Irish flare." 

Shot on location in Cleveland, Dublin and County Clare, "The Yank" tells the story of Tom Murphy, a middle-aged Cleveland bachelor. For Tom, "the perfect woman" is beautiful, hard-working, family-oriented and (like his parents) 100 percent Irish. So when his best friend, Marty, decides to get married in Ireland, Tom's family and friends send him off on a side splitting epic adventure. Tom does not know it yet, but he's about to come face to face with the real Ireland!

It's a movie that most Irish Americans are certain to relate to in some way - and find themselves in at least one character.  

The Yank stars Colm Meaney ("The Commitments", "The Van", "Star Trek"), Fred Willard ("Best In Show"), Niki Spiridakos (“Blind Ambition”), Kevin Farley ("Tommy Boy"), Martin Maloney (“The Hardy Bucks Movie”), Nicole Forester (“Jack Reacher”, "Boss"), Charlotte Bradley ("Veronica Guerin") -- and introducing Sean Lackey.

Buy your tickets in advance here.

I'm a member of Artists Without Walls based in NYC and there are many Irish themed events sponsored by them. Hope it isn't too late to plan for this show for those of you based in NY -

Looking forward to seeing "Transport" at the Irish Rep. Have been a fan of Black 47 for many years.

Purchased my tickets before I knew a group trip was planned. Saw it last Thursday and it was delightful. Although the story was sad, the acting and singing were amazing and the few dances were fun. Overall, a great experience. Hope you all enjoy it as much as my husband and I did.

Jim, Brigid a chairde, delighted you'll be joining Mary and I. I believe Paraic Feeney and a pal are joining us as well, with others a distinct possibility. I'd be absolutely thrilled to get 10 on board, and we can certainly accomodate them. Let me know ASAP if you know anyone further whom might join us. I'd be happy to personally invite them. Ger

Donna a chara, I'm pleased that you enjoyed the performance and that you took the time to tell us. Looking forward to meeting you soon at an upcoming event.
