LEADING Irish singer songwriter Declan O’Rourke makes a special appearance in Limerick University Concert Hall this Thursday night, backed by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.

Following a sold out and atmospheric concert with the orchestra in Dublin last year, the Galileo singer is now coming to Limerick for a repeat performance this week.

One of the finest Irish performers of our time, the gifted multi-platinum artist’s astute song-writing abilities have won him international acclaim. Galileo has been covered by everyone from Josh Groban to Paul Byrom and he’s had plaudits from the likes of Snow Patrol, Kate Rusby and DJs Jonathan Ross and Edith Bowman.

Paul Weller has said of O’Rourke: “He writes the sort of classic songs that people don’t write anymore, songs that sound like they’ve been around forever.”

O’Rourke’s third album, Mag Pai Zai, topped the success of his first two albums - Since Kyabram and Big Bad Beautiful World - and held its own in Ireland’s Top 10 Album Chart for four consecutive weeks.

Don’t miss the rare chance to enjoy O’Rourke with the mighty weight of the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, performing Galileo, Be Brave and Believe and more.

Tickets are €25 and available from the UCH website.
