Shoot the Gear is a play exploring the fishing industry and the way of life in Killybegs, Ireland’s largest fishing port. The work has been created in partnership with An Grianán Theatre and facilitated by the Killybegs Fishermens Organisation, whose support of the project has proved crucial in gaining access to, and the trust of, all manner of people from fishermen and their wives and families, to buyers and sellers, net makers and menders, boatyard men, harbour staff, factory workers and more.
Featuring original songs, laughter, stories and experiences, drawn form the memories and reminiscences of the fishing community of Killybegs.
