Christy Moore’s new studio album Lily was released worldwide in May 2016. The title track tells us of Christy’s early memories of County Kildare, and the album takes us on a journey across the water and back home with songs from Christy, Peter Gabriel and local heroes; John Spillane and Declan O’Rourke.

Christy has produced more than 25 solo albums, from Paddy on the Road in 1969 to Where I Come From in 2013 so no doubt he will be also belting out some of his classics.

Tickets will go on sale Thursday 24 November at 9am from Ticketmaster and usual outlets.
