Tickets for the trio's Cork gig go on sale tomorrow.
Less than a week after selling out Vicar Street in under 30 minutes, The Mary Wallopers have announced a headline show – Live at St. Luke's, Cork on December 19.
Made up of brothers Andrew and Charles Hendy, as well as Sean McKenna, the Dundalk ballad group have rapidly established themselves as a captivating force in Irish music – with their trademark combination of charm, irreverence, staggering talent and a fiercely DIY ethos.
Over lockdown, their live-streamed gigs from the Hendys' home in Dundalk helped them to build up a major online fanbase – following appearances on the Tommy Tiernan Show, and the Fontaines D.C.-curated Rock Against Homelessness night at the Olympia Theatre, Dublin in 2020. In 2019, they released their acclaimed debut EP, A Mouthful of The Mary Wallopers.
The Mary Wallopers were also recently involved in Breaking The Silence – a live-streamed event from the National Concert Hall, featuring words and music in response to the legacy of Ireland's Mother and Baby Home Institutions.
Tickets for The Mary Wallopers, Live at St. Luke's, are €24 (plus booking fee), and go on sale tomorrow, June 9, at 10am from liveatstlukes.com & uticket.ie
