  • Very nice concept. They could probably have done with some bigger names though, to be honest. I’ve become a real Irish music junkie and I still only know less than a third of them, so can’t see myself giving up a weekend for it. Still, great concept, we could use some more cross border links, especially given how good the N. Ire scene is right now. Hope it grows.
