And then, one year later, they came to the Waterfront, Belfast, for three nights. And they were magnificent. No, they were not "as good as they used to be". They were even better. Everything said about the Vicar St gigs is true.
There's question back there about any new stuff from Andy Irvine. Yes, a great song from him about the folk revival/ballad boom in Dublin as seen from O'Donoghue's.
I think they're playing in the Barbican at the end of the month. It would be worth a trip to London just to see them again.
