HELP THE HARDY BUCKS STEAL DUNDALK!
News has just reached our desks that those
perennial chancers, the maverick rapscallions of the
Hardy Bucks are making their Dundalk debut at the Spirit
Store, on Saturday 12th May.
Hardy Bucks is an comedy media series, filmed in mockumentary
style and following the fictional exploits of a group
of young men living somewhere in small-town Ireland.
It started out as a series of largely improvised online
episodes, revolving around outrageous characters like
Eddie Durkan and 'Frenchtoast' O'Toole. A six-part webisode
series went on to win the 2009 'Storyland' competition
held by Irish national broadcaster RTE Television from
a total of 122 applications.
Several series followed and the boys have also completed
their very own Christmas special for RTE. The Hardy
Bucks Movie was released by Universal Pictures in Feb
2013, achieving Box Office No 1 on its opening weekend
and becoming the most successful Irish film of 2013.
The programme has been compared to 'Trailer Park Boys',
a Canadian mockumentary, with Chris Tordoff (aka The
Viper) citing that show as an influence. Hardy Bucks
is filmed on location in Swinford, Co Mayo, and features
several locals as extras and can also be compared to
'Curb Your Enthusiasm', with the characters given the
liberty to improvise around the plot lines and dialogue
to create the heady mix that makes the show so distinctive
and different to any other show ever attempted on Irish
The Hardy Bucks show at the Spirit Store, on Saturday
12th May is their first appearance in Dundalk - so get
ready to be jousted into a realm of outrageous humour
wielded by the highest order of craic merchants on the
