Live Show on Transatlantic Rowers Comes to The Galmont

In the early hours of Oct 4th 2022, Damian Browne became the first person ever in the history of the World to row from New York to Galway. This incredible feat took 112 days and was the culmination of over 3 years' work by Damian, lifelong friend Fergus Farrell and MacDara Hosty. Now, a live show about the endeavour comes to The Galmont in Galway...

Damian and Fergus set out on this epic challenge as a pair with the intention of completing the row across the most ferocious ocean on earth in world record time. Unfortunately, less than two weeks out from New York Fergus became ill and had to be medically evacuated from Cushlamachree – the expedition boat. This meant that Damian now had to complete the challenge on his own.

112 Days is the live story of an amazing adventure that culminated in Damians incredible achievement. In this live show, Damian, Fergus and MacDara will share this story in their own words. It is a story of resilience, courage, tenacity and persistence. It is a story of how persevering through uncertainty will eventually deliver untold rewards and along with Damian, Fergus and MacDara sharing these stories live, the show will also include unseen footage from the North Atlantic which Damian was able to capture during his voyage. As well as hearing the story of this once in a lifetime endeavour, the audience will also learn how Damian maintained his mental strength and resilience through the most challenging circumstances in one of the most extreme environments on earth.

Starting on Friday January 20th Damian, Fergus and MacDara will be performing the show live at The Galmont Hotel in Galway. The first show on Jan 20th at 8pm is already sold out and the second show at 8pm on Thursday Jan 19th is selling fast. There are also specially priced shows for secondary school students daily at 10am and 12.30pm. Tickets available on Eventbrite are €30 each plus booking fee with tickets for the daytime shows for secondary school students reduced from €30 per ticket plus booking fee to €15 per ticket plus booking fee for groups of 25 or more.

112 Days is the story of two men's extraordinary journey in attempting to row 3000 miles across one of the most feared sections of ocean on the planet. There will be tales from the high seas and detailed accounts of the unfathomable challenges that rowing an ocean entails. This unique live show promises to bring the audience on an inspiring journey full of incredible ambition, harrowing capsizes, dodging giant tankers, remarkable perseverance, copious whales, desolate solitude, ferocious storms, cruel weather conditions and one man's extraordinary will never to give up.
