Following last year’s successful visit to Castlebar, Tom Duffy’s Circus is back again for the Easter Holidays with a new show. From today Friday March 29 to Monday April 1 you will have the opportunity to witness Ireland’s greatest circus at the site on the Ballinrobe Road. With everything from expert acrobats to exotic animals you will not want to miss this wildly popular show.
This year Tom Duffy’s Circus presents the awe inspiring kung fu performance of the Shaolin monks. Drawing inspiration from some 1,500 years of Chinese martial arts, the intensely disciplined monks demonstrate remarkable concentration, exquisite showmanship, and feats of strength that boggle the mind. Their first appearance in an Irish circus is guaranteed to have you at the edge of your seat.
Another thrilling spectacle being featured is the wheel of death which will leave you breathless as the enormous twin wheel spins at dizzying speeds, Tom Duffy’s premiere performers twist and leap, often blindfolded, in a stunning display that is lauded as one of the most dangerous acts in the world.
The timeless appeal of the animal kingdom is not lost at Tom Duffy’s Circus, you will not be disappointed by the exotic Bengal tigers and African lions, nor the lively performances by llamas and alpacas, and of course, time honoured liberty horses and ponies. Enthusiastic fans are welcomed to go backstage after performances to see the beautiful extended family of Tom Duffy’s in their living quarters, showcasing the phenomenal round the clock care the animals receive. Tickets are cheaper online at duffyscircus.com or can also be purchased from any Ticketmaster or the onsite box office.
