comedy, pathos, joy, naughtiness
and train wreck!Join Nellie during Sligo Live
Sessions to hear her observations on life
and love. Straight from the heart, while seen
through the lens of a strange gin filled rose
glass vase, that one might find on a prop list
from The Antiques Roadshow. Nellie is loved by
the under 10s and over 60s for her storytelling
abilities, with those in between admirably catered for too.
Mrs Nellie Murphy is realedgy with heart. Less malice,
more malaprop. Genius in Pink Seattle Review
