Limerick's rock trio Whenyoung and poet Sinead O'Brien return for hometown gig

Whenyoung released their debut album Reason to Dream this year

TWO PROMISING Limerick-London acts will share the stage for a short Irish tour, which will include a special homecoming gig at Dolan’s later this year.

Following a sensational year with their debut album Reason to Dream, Limerick-Clare trio Whenyoung will tour four cities in November, alongside acclaimed Limerick poet and performer Sinead O’Brien.

The two acts will perform at the Button Factory in Dublin on November 7, followed by Cork’s Cyprus Avenue the following night, before returning to Limerick at Dolan’s on Saturday, November 9. They will then finish their Irish tour at Roisin Dubh in Galway the following night.

Hinting at an imminent hometown gig, Whenyoung drummer Andrew Flood told the Limerick Leader: “Limerick is still home. Every time we come back and play a show, it’s such a nice feeling coming back home.”

Announcing their show on Twitter, Whenyoung said: “Buzzing to announce we’re playing an Irish tour in November with our bestie, the incredibly talented Sinead O’Brien”. 

Sinead O’Brien, who has had writings published in the London Magazine, is known for her unique fusion of art rock and spoken word performances. 

Tickets for the Dolan’s show go on sale this Friday at 10am at Dolan’s Pub and on their website.
