Since our inception we have played from Achill Island to the Capital, from Arranmore to West Cork and just about everywhere in between. We've had slots at Electric Picnic, Body & Soul and All Together Now. In June '19, we played our first headline show at a packed Theatre Royal in Waterford.

We believe the completion of our project is attainable. If we raise the necessary funds, we have chosen March 2020 as the release date.

The recording and CD/Vinyl manufacturing process is very costly. We hope to get the support from our fans via pre order reward options to get the album finished, available online and in shops.

We would like to thank everyone that has given their time to read this Fund it campaign. With this support it allows us accomplish a feat that would be out of our grasp for a very long time.
