No rest for some

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - LISTINGS - TONY CLAY­TON-LEA

As we hun­ker down into our bunkers for the time of year that’s in it, let’s just say that there aren’t many acts per­form­ing out there – and the ones who are gig­ging are ex­clu­sively Ir­ish: The Stun­ning, Rosie Car­ney, Deloren­tos, Lisa O’Neill, Damien Dempsey, Jerry Fish, Wind­ings, Mundy, Turn, Frank & Wal­ters, As­lan, Katharine Philippa, Pierce Turner, Paddy Casey, Le Galaxie, Orig­i­nal Rude­boys, R.S.A.G. and Jinx Len­non.

It is, there­fore, a very green sea­sonal col­lec­tion of tal­ent criss-cross­ing the coun­try in an at­tempt to even fur­ther en­hance the Christ­mas cheer. So, you know, sup­port them all – let’s be there for those who are here for us through­out the year be­fore we switch off the lights.

Be­fore we switch off alto- gether, may this par­tic­u­lar writer wish one and all a won­der­ful Christ­mas time! Sorry? Oh, see­ing as you’re ask­ing, I’ll have a Brandy Alexan­der, thank you very much. With a cherry on top, if you can man­age it.

Clockwise from be­low: Jerry Fish, Le Galaxie, Lisa O’Neill, The Stun­ning, Katharine Philippa
