Limerick band heading to home of Premier League champions with new song

Leicester bound: The Corrigan Brothers

LIMERICK band the Corrigan Brothers are heading to Leicester to help the soccer team and city celebrate their big Premier League title win.

The Castletroy-based outfit will head over to Leicester to perform their latest song “Here’s to Ranieri’s Boys”  in the coming weeks.

The brothers  who have achieved global fame with their YouTube hit ‘There's no one as Irish as Barack Obama’ will rework Slade’s ‘Come on Feel the Noise’ and release it as ‘Here’s to Ranieri’s Boys’.

Guitarist and songwriter with the band Brian Corrigan said:  “The goodwill of the sporting world is for Leicester and we just had to celebrate them in song.”

The brothers are currently finalising arrangements for a performance of the song in Leicester before the end of May. Brian continued: “There is really great interest from the Leicester media in the song and radio stations are very excited about receiving it.”

The Castletroy brothers are no strangers to football songs having already played Cardiff City Stadium as guests of the Cardiff City owner, Mister Vincent Tan.

They are hoping that this latest song will be as big a hit as the Obama number. 

The band are also well aware of the many Limerick links with Leicester City with a number of locals having starred for the side in the past.
