Watch 650 people sing an iconic song in a Cork theatre

After getting a publicity boost in an episode of The Young Offenders, indie Cork band The Frank and Walters have seen an increase in popularity in their hit song 'After All'.

Last year viewers saw bad boy Billy Murphy make his hostages on a Bus Éireann bus come together and sing the iconic song, which at the time jumped to number three on the Irish iTunes charts 25 years after its release.

If you thought 13 people singing it on a bus sounded well, just wait until you see the latest rendition of the tune by Choir! Choir! Choir!

During Cork's Midsummer Festival earlier this summer, Toronto-based Daveed Goldman and Nobu Adilman came to the city for a night like no other at the Everyman Theatre.

Attendees were given a sheet of lyrics at the door and taught the vocal arrangement of 'After All' before a video of them singing was recorded.

As the event was sold out, a whopping 650 people braved the summer rain to sing together at the Victorian-era theatre and the resulting video is amazing.

Daveed and Nobu - aka 'DaBu' - said they had "such an incredible time" during their first visit to Ireland.

Bravo!
