Go away for a year and people just might remember your name when you come back. Go away for seven years and they’ll reasonably presume you have taken early retirement. Either way, you’re not necessarily going to be welcomed back with open arms, a bunch of flowers, and a sherry – people want to know… Read More › Cork (May 12th) review

It has been six years since Snow Patrol last performed in Ireland but on Saturday night, they performed to a sold-out Opera House in Cork. The last time Snow Patrol played in Ireland was on the back of the release of Fallen Empires in 2012, at Dublin’s Phoenix Park. Who would’ve thought back then that there’d be… Read More ›
