One of Ireland’s most popular singers Declan O’Rourke plays the Glens Centre Manorhamiton this Saturday, July 28.

‘Big Bad Beautiful World’ and the much loved song ‘galileo’ are just two of the hits that have contributed to Declan O’Rourkes’s success. Declan O’Rourke used to be one of Ireland’s best kept secrets, but rave reviews for his debut album ‘Since Kyabram’, a growing international fanbase and an enviable collection of eminent devotees, including Paul Weller, Snow Patrol and Kate Rusby, have rapidly changed that.

On its release in Ireland, ‘Since Kyabram’ reached double platinum status and garnered Hot Press magazine’s ‘Best Debut Album’ award.

The buzz is growing, based on the simplicity of great songs and a unique voice. Declan’s lyrics touch on all aspects of the individual, his songs focus on the centre of everyday emotions and his voice irresistibly draws the listener in. He has an understated charm, a quick-wittedness that make him highly endearing live and equally at home playing to one person as he is to thousands.

Tickets are €20 and are available from the Glens at (071) 98 55833 or online at www.theglenscentre.com
