It’s always been a dream of mine to see the Limerick Group live and in the flesh, from my earliest experiences with the band I have always had a love for the lilting brogue that Dolores brings to the stage and the ease in which they switch from soft almost college rock suited to a warm summer day, to heavy riffs and deep political messages for when you want to let your inner grunge out.
I can safely say that not a single person in the Waterfront that night was left disappointed, with the crowd on their feet multiple times, hands swaying along to the intoxicating, euphoric melodies of tracks such as “linger” and fists in the air for the punchier tracks like their popular classic “Zombie”
With the inclusion of a String quartet from the Irish Chamber Orchestra the band really used an arsenal of instruments to create a sonic symphony that was easy on the ears and a true pleasure to witness
With album sales reaching over 40 Million, and a vocalist that is truly a national treasure, I can safely say that this was one of the top gigs of 2017 without a doubt.
