Birdthistle Single Launch

Limerick’s music haven, Dolan’s Pub, once again gave way to success at Birdthistle’s ‘Let It All Go Home’ Single Launch on Friday, May 27. The upstairs venue hosted a warm crowd of family, friends and new fans of the Limerick indie/folk group. Also in attendance were Vertigo Smyth and Campaign LK who built up the buzzing atmosphere before Birdthistle came to the stage.

The five-man band consisting of two sets of long-time friends and one pair of brothers ‘couldn’t have enjoyed their time on stage more’, according to a member of the audience. They have suddenly had a blast of support from all parts of the globe, with recent boosts in social networking sites and achieving a well deserved place on RTÉ Radio One’s playlist. After promising comments from Hot Press in which Alan Owens described Birdthistle as ‘reminiscent of The Waterboys at the height of their powers’, their originality is evergrowing.
