MurphGuide is a proud sponsor of this year's Irish Rock Revue.
Our friend Joe Hurley once again produces and hosts his annual All-Star Irish Rock Revue. This show is the highlight of the St. Patrick's Day season. With an all-star line-up of professional singers & musicians, you are bombarded with one stunning performance after another.
