De­clan O’Rourke is com­ing to Mer­maid


De­clan O’Rourke will per­form at Mer­maid Arts Cen­tre on Thurs­day Jan­uary 8 2015 at 8 p.m. De­clan was a late­comer to the Dublin singer-song­writer scene. But in his mid-twen­ties, within months of dis­cov­er­ing Dublin’s bustling song­writer open-mic cir­cuit, O’Rourke found him­self in the mix with the likes of Paddy Casey, Gemma Hayes, Damien Rice and many other Ir­ish artists.

Over a decade on from the hugely suc­cess­ful re­lease of his de­but al­bum Since Kyabram, O’Rourke re­turns to Mer­maid.

Hear him per­form hits like Galileo, which Paul Weller sin­gled out as the only song from the past 20 years that he wished he had writ­ten.

There will be a wealth of ma­te­rial to draw from as O’Rourke brings the au­di­ence at the in­ti­mate venue on a won­der­ful jour­ney through his cat­a­logue.

Last time the song­writer was in Bray his friend Paddy Casey hopped on to the stage for a song or two. For tick­ets or more in­for­ma­tion call (01) 2724030 or go to www.mer­maid­arts­cen­
