Are You A Button Man? @ EPIC


Following a sell-out debut in The Sugar Club in April 2018, Are You A Button Man? returns to the docks on Saturday the 15th of December at EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum.

Are You A Button Man? is a collaboration of storytelling, music and song in celebration of Dublin’s former dock workers presented by Macdara Yeates and the Dublin Dock Workers' Preservation Society.
Join historian Donal Fallon (Come Here To Me!, National Treasures) in conversation with Paddy Nevins, Declan Byrne, Paddy Daly and John Walsh as they tell the historic, gruelling and comic tales of their many years of service on the Dublin docks: loading the fragile sales cargo of one Hector Grey; smuggling crates of “Wodka Vodka” for a Docker’s daughter’s wedding; and the hoisting of two of Dublin Zoo’s African elephants from a British liner onto dry land. With music from Lisa O'Neill, Danny Diamond (Slow Moving Clouds) and Macdara Yeates (Skipper’s Alley).
In association with EPIC, The Dublin Port Company and the North East Inner City Initiative.
