Additional information

There are currently no runtimes at present.

Following the sudden death of founding member Barney McKenna in 2012 and John Sheahan’s decision to retire, it was agreed that The Dubliners, as a touring band, would come to the end and The Dublin Legends were born.

The Dublin Legends are Sean Cannon, Gerry O’Connor, Paul Watchorn and Shay Kavanagh. They will continue to play all of The Dubliners classic songs and ballads known the world over. Whiskey in The Jar, Dirty Old Town, The Wild Rover, Seven Drunken Nights. The Rare Auld Times, Molly Malone, THE Irish Rover, Black Velvet Band and many more.

In 2017 the band decided it was time to go back to the studio and record a brand new CD which is now ready for release. “The Dublin Sessions” will feature 16 newly recorded tracks and includes some old favourites & classics that the lads wanted to get down on disc…The Leaving of Liverpool, Schooldays Over, Pub with No Beer, Rambling Rover, Hand Me Down My Bible and some scorching tunes from Gerry O’Connor: Billy in The Low Ground / The Temperance Reel and. Of course, Seven Drunken Nights.

In the past six years the band have continued on the legacy of The Dubliners by travelling far and wide playing concerts to a whole new generation of Irish music fans. They have wowed audiences in Iceland, Norway, Finland, The Faroe Islands, Sweden, Holland, Belgium, France, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland and, of course, all over England, Scotland & Wales.

2019 sees the band celebrate the St. Patrick’s Day period with a 10 date March UK Tour and will follow it with a tour of Scotland and more UK dates in April. It promises to be one hell of a party! From Seven Drunken Nights to Whiskey in The Jar. Make sure you join the boys for “one” on the road! They’d be delighted to see you!
