Legendary Celtic rockers of Horslips add second date

First night for members of Horslips’ sells out – Additional night added

THE touring members of Horslips have added a second date to this year’s Earagail Arts Festival (10th to 28th July) following the quick sell-out of their first night in McGrory’s Hotel, Culdaff.

The full programme of events for this year’s Earagail Arts Festival has now been live on www.eaf.ie for nearly two weeks and tickets for shows are selling fast.

Following two hugely successful shows at Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival, Johnny Fean, Barry Devlin, Jim Lockhart of Horslips are now set to perform at McGrory’s Hotel, Culdaff during Earagail Arts Festival in July.

Joined by Ray Fean (Johnny’s brother) on drums, the legendary Celtic rockers have now added a second date (Monday, 29th July), following the quick sell-out of their initial date on Sunday, 28th July.

With hits such as Dearg Doom and Trouble with a Capital T, the band became infamous for their blend of Irish trad and rock and to this day, audiences all over Ireland still respond to the unique sound of the godfathers of Celtic Rock.

If you missed out on tickets to their first date, make sure to book now to avoid disappointment. Johnny Fean, Barry Devlin, Jim Lockhart of Horslips, with Ray Fean, play McGrory’s Hotel, Culdaff, for a second night on Monday, 29th July, and tickets are now on sale HERE.

Selling fast

Other shows selling very well in the lead-up to this year’s Earagail Arts Festival include Dublin folk outfit Lankum who are playing Letterkenny during this year’s Donegal International Folk & Roots Weekend (10th to 14th July), US comedian Jim Gaffigan (24th July) and the Ceol le Chéile/Donegal Choir of Ages concert (28th July), both at An Grianán Theatre, Letterkenny.

Festival CEO & Artistic Director, Mr Paul Brown said: “We are delighted with the response to the programme and in particular to the sold out show by Horslips. So much so we’ve added another date for Horslips such has been the demand.

“The year on year comparison for ticket sales indicates shows are selling fast and with limited capacities in most venues we’d advise all our patrons to purchase their tickets via our website or the box office at An Grianan Theatre as early as possible to avoid any disappointment.”
