One of Ireland’s most prolific songwriters and revered musicians, Brian Kennedy performs at the Oriel Centre in Dundalk later this month where he will perform from his much loved back catalogue in the intimate surrounds of Dundalk Gaol.

Originally from Belfast, Brian remains one of Ireland’s most popular singing stars north and south of the border. He was among the musicians who performed on RTE One’s New Years Eve show three weeks ago and he will be performing songs from his platinum selling albums ‘A Better Man’ and ‘Now That I Know What I Want’ among much more besides.


Brian Kennedy plays the Oriel Centre on  Saturday February 22. Early booking is advised. Tickets are €30.

Meanwhile, looking even further ahead, Northern Irish rock band Relish will make a very welcome visit to the Oriel Centre on Saturday April 4.

Perhaps best known for the songs “Rainbow Zephyr” and “You I’m Thinking Of”, from their debut album, Wildflowers, Relish have toured the world as part of Sinead O’Connor’s band, have supported U2 and have worked with an array of artists including Paul Brady and Paul Weller.

The band also co-write and performed on the soundtrack for Oscar winning director John Carney’s movie “Sing Street”, which was nominated for a Golden Globe three years ago.


Tickets are priced at €25. There are also limited tickets still available for The Frank and Walters who make a welcome return to the Oriel Centre on Saturday March 21. 


Tickets for all three shows are available from The Oriel Centre, Dundalk Gaol and from www.orielcentre.ie.
