In 1969, nine young ordinary men set out on an extraordinary 3-year-long world trip in Pillock II, a double-decker bus. From this they produced an amazing feature length film, Pillock Conquers the World.
Join us for a 3-Day Celebration and Fundraiser! Having busked their way around the world with folk music and Irish songs, the Pillock crew have decided to commence the celebrations of the 50th Anniversary of their return in 1972 by visiting Bantry, and helping support 2 worthy causes in the process.
Along with 2 of the original members of the group, this well-travelled double-decker bus will arrive in Bantry town square on the evening of Friday 17th June to begin a fundraising weekend for our West Cork Sudbury School and the Bantry Lions’ Suicide Awareness Drop-in Centre.
