We headed to the Vicar Street to see Interference and a host of others pay tribute to Fergus O'Farrell.
Fergus O’Farrell, lead singer of the band Interference, died last year aged 48, when he finally succumbed to the disabling deterioration of the muscular dystrophy that he was diagnosed with as a child.
Alongside the care of his loved ones and of his wife, Lee, what kept Ferg around 30 years longer than the doctors originally predicted, was his passion for life; his humour and mischief; his love for the arts, people, fun and banter; and his outpouring of creative expression.
These attributes made Fergus the epicentre of a free-spirited creative community. That’s why, at this Vicar Street gig to celebrate Ferg, the stage is heaving with a roll call of Ireland’s top musicians, here to acknowledge him as both a songwriting maestro, and a master in the art of life.
