Coughlan's Live


Coughlan's of Cork has always housed live music but it seems there is a new revamp on the way in the shape of the aptly titled Coughlan's Live sessions.

A concentration on Irish folkies is the key it seems with west Cork based legends Interference - fresh from their recent performance down in Liss Ard - set to play a very special afternoon show on the last day of September.

Rising local stars John Blek & The Rats play the Thursday (27th Sept) before that with word of a debut-album-on-the-brink-of-release floating about Leeside. That is certainly one to look out for. Not everything on the line-up may be folks preferred cup-of-tea but it's great to see another regular session promoting original music up and running in the city.

Dates confirmed for the official opening weekend:

  • 27th - Coughlan's Live presents: John Blek & The Rats and Joey Ryan in Coughlans
  • 29th - Coughlan's Live presents: Mundy and Karrie in Coughlans
  • 30th - Coughlan's Live presents: Interference and Anna Mitchell in Coughlans (4pm)
  • 30th - Coughlan's Live presents: Liam O'Maonlai in Coughlans (8pm)

- Coughlan's is located on Douglas Street, Cork
