This video was created by Claire Staunton, made with a collection of photos taken by a great Dublin photographer Allyn O'Neill. The photos were shot as dawn approached at Poolbeg light house in the depths of winter and capture David with some fantastic shots of the city in which he sings about in the song.
The launch party of Ruirteach Blues was an AMAZING night. It turned out exactly how we wanted it..
Big thanks to the following people:
Band - Kieran Morley, Simon Graydon, Shane Stimpson, Tom Slattery and Howie Ginnell
Near FM & Near TV - Declan Doherty, Kelly-ann and the whole team for recording the whole night
Photos - Ian Staunton
An of course everyone that came out to see the gig, there was lots of familiar faces but better again lots of new faces! Hopefully there will be plenty more gigs in the coming months!
