Twitter reacts to Ireland’s first live gig post-lockdown in the Iveagh Gardens

Last night saw the first live gig in Ireland since the Covid-19 pandemic hit the country in March of 2020.

The highly anticipated event organised by The National Concert Hall saw James Vincent McMorrow and Sorcha Richardson perform live at the Iveagh Gardens and was also live streamed on YouTube.

Taking to social media the day before the concert James shared his excitement; “This is a stage. Tomorrow I play on this stage. This is the first show I’ve played in a year and a half, the first thats been played in Ireland since the pandemic hit in March of last year.”

“I’ve never been so excited for a show in my entire life.”

It has been fifteen months since there was a major concert here in Ireland, and yesterday evening was a test run of how live music could continue in a safe and controlled manner going forward.


Selling out in record time, with 500 tickets, it has really positive responses online from those who were lucky enough to attend and those who watched from home.
