“Is it too much to ask in modern Ireland that we shouldn’t have everybody sleeping on the streets? We addressed same sex marriage, we were the first nation in the world to do that, and coming from a famine country where everybody was displaced and had to leave, we think we should be in the forefront of ending homelessness” – Jim SheridanRead More

We are pleased to announce
Celebrating the Life & Music of Fergus O’Farrell – Interference with Glen Hansard
Cork Opera House Cork – 2nd February 2017
Vicar Street Dublin – 5th February 2017
Interference will be playing two shows next February with Glen Hansard to celebrate the life and work of Fergus O’Farrell. Expect to hear tunes from all 30 years of the bands’ career along with some old familiar faces and some very special guests. Long time honorary interferer Glen will be taking main vocals for both shows. This promises to be an extraordinary couple of nights of music and musicianship to acknowledge one of Ireland’s most talented songwriters and his incredible band Interference performed by some of the people whose own careers Fergus greatly inspired and influenced.
All profits from both nights will go to two charities very important to us: Brú Columbanus – who provide a “home from home” accommodation for relatives of seriously ill patients in any of the Cork Hospitals and the Hospice, and the Respite Care Unit of Schull Community Hospital.
There may never be another talent quite like Ferg’s, “whichever way the wind blows…” these are two very special nights that are not to be missed.Read More
