They’ve spent a majority of the year in recluse, but our hearts have only grown founder for Letterkenny’s In Their Thousands. Tipped as one of the top Irish music acts to emerge over the past few years we chatted to Ruairí Friel about how it felt to finally headline a festival and what they have in store after the summer.
❝Their opening move ‘To The Swell’ keeps the energy levels high without peaking to early. It garners a rambunctious ovation as Declan McClafferty pelts out the pensive lyrical nod to the sea lough which the revellers had traversed on the Ferry. The Letterkenny four-piece continue in the vein of the nautical theme with the story of fallen fisherman ‘The Old Man and The Sea’, a mighty eruption of rowdy rock. ❞
