Performing evergreen sing-along Irish music at its very best, Blimey O’Reilly will ensure an exciting evening of entertainment for everyone to enjoy! The group’s broad, versatile repertoire, mainly consisting of traditional favourites together with a fair few newcomers, includes all-time classics like ‘Danny Boy’, ‘The Leaving Of Liverpool’ or ‘Whiskey In The Jar’, and a bespoke set-list can readily be tailored to suit your event.

“This professional Irish threesome will deliver a lively presentation of up-tempo traditional-style music guaranteed to have your toes tapping!”

As a trio, the group consists of Nigel on vocals, mandolin and tenor banjo, Chris on rhythm guitar and vocals, and Tom on piano-accordion. For larger events the band can also add a fiddle to reinforce the band’s classic Irish sound. Drumkit and bass on backing tracks are often included to provide extra kick, and the band plays all your favourite Irish songs, from traditional tunes to tracks by The Saw Doctors and The Pogues.

Blimey O’Reilly are available to play for any type of event, large or small, as either a duo, trio or four-piece band with the additional fiddle-player. They always come fully-equipped with a high-quality PA system to ensure their sound is well-balanced and clear, adequately filling any venue.

So kick off your shoes and enjoy an excellent night of entertainment, splendid music and tremendous ‘craic’ in the company of Blimey O’Reilly!

    I booked Blimey O’Reilly for my Nana’s funeral so was really happy at how easy it was to book through HTYD, the cooperation and help was second to none and the band was fantastic. Coming from an Irish background, I thought it would be fitting to have some live Irish music. Everyone enjoyed it and I would strongly recommend this band if you want a good old Irish jig. Thank you
