ABOUT MOCKIE AH
Recently named one of Ireland's top tourist attractions by BBC One's The Travel Show, Mockie Ah is Ireland's leading Drag Haus and queer party. A tour-de-force of camp, comedy, absolute bangers and sparkling sequins!
The legendary Haus was founded in 2017 as a response to the lack of queer spaces in Cork by leading Irish drag artist Candy Warhol (Comedy Central's Dragony Aunts). With an ever-expanding diverse lineup, the Cork City-based collective has gone from strength to strength with regular nationwide cabarets, festival shows, club-nights and appearances across Europe. In 2019 the queens were featured on a TV3 pride special and in 2021 a critically acclaimed documentary focusing on five members of the group ,Kin Of Kweens, was broadcast on RTÉ.
In 2022 the queens launched regular club-nights and drag brunches in various cities, hosted shows at Electric Picnic and Body and Soul and embarked on their first nationwide tour with Rupaul's Drag Race star Le Fil. 2023 saw another national tour featuring Rupaul's Drag Race queen Just May and large-scale shows featuring iconic music acts N-Trance, Booty Luv and The Cheeky Girls as well an array of RuPaul's Drag Race Queens.
Autumn 2023 will see the collective host one of Culture Night's flagship events at Cork's Marina Market, tour with their production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and expand their club nights and brunches to more cities around Ireland.
