Acclaimed singer-songwriter Róisín O will return to Whelan’s this October.

The last time the folk musician played the intimate venue, Campus contributor Siobhán McGuire gave the Dubliner a good review, describing the gig as triumphant and hypnotic.

“The singer’s sound was quite memorable,” Siobhán wrote, “with a tinge of Dolores O’Riordan added to her own silky voice.”

The young performer – who just so happens to be the daughter of Mary Black and the sister of Danny O’Reilly from The Coronas (but is a top performer in her own right) – managed to stir up plenty of “cheers and applause from a highly satisfied audience” last time round, so we’re expecting an even more captivating show this autumn.

Róisín’s Dublin date will take place after she tours the US for the first time this summer.

Tickets cost €12 and are available from Ticketmaster now.
