Each night the band will be followed by a D.J. and the all-important late bar. Night one, which was held two weeks ago, saw Cork band Hell For Leather entertain the crowd.

Superb Feedback

Feedback from this event was superb and we are now really looking forward to the arrival of Tullamore based band Ruaile Buaile. These guys have really been making waves in the music industry having recently been featured on the Ray D’Arcy show and just finished a tour of America. Their unique cover of Maniac 2000 has over 1 million views on you tube, a true testament to their talent. Ruaile Buaile is a young Irish based four-piece modern day Trad / Pop / Folk group from Offaly in the heart of Ireland.

Gaining Support

The four friends Niall on vocals and guitar;  Arthur on fiddle and banjo; Shane on vocals and bass and Jack on Cajun banjo. The band formed in 2011, and has been gaining support from music fans and festival goers across Ireland, UK, Germany, Holland, France, United Arab Emirates, and America to date.

From a small start to the world stage in only a few short years Ruaile Buaile is set to become a household name on the festival scene around the world.

Ground Thumping Celtic Beats

With their own style of high energy ground thumping celtic beats with a little Irish charm and flare these four young award-winning musicians are setting the pace for some of the better known established acts to follow.

After calls from many of their fans and venues, the band decided to record an album of their most popular songs on the set and with the guidance of Trevor Hutchinson from The Waterboys and Lúnasa, they recorded their first album, ‘Commotion‘ which entered the Irish iTunes Chart at no three within weeks of release which a great achievement for an independent unsigned up and coming band and testament to the band’s growing popularity with their loyal fans.
