2021 has been a crap year for Irish musicians for various reasons, but every now and then there’s a shard of light amongst the gloom and news that The Eskies are reforming for a show in their spiritual home Whelan’s is one of those rare moments of positivity.

The goodest of good-time sea shanty merchants and history buffs will return to Whelan’s on February 19th. Tickets €19.00 on sale here. Be quick though, this is guaranteed to sell out.
