In 1967, The Dubliners released a song so controversial that it was officially banned on the radio in Ireland, catapulting them into global success and turning the Irish folk band into legends, writes Rachel Cunningham.

From their roots in O’Donoghue’s Pub in Dublin, Seven Drunken Nights – The Story of the Dubliners features all the highlights of an amazing 50-year career and is due to return for a fifth year in the UK and Ireland

Featuring some of Ireland’s most talented musicians, singers and storytellers, the show will be playing at more than 125 prestigious venues, including 12 venues in Ireland.

“This is such an exciting time for Seven Drunken Nights, it feels amazing to head out on the road for our 5th anniversary tour,” explains Ged Graham, creator and show-producer.

“I don’t think that there is any musician in Ireland who hasn’t been influenced by their music. The Dubliners hold a unique place in the hearts of not only Irish people but people who love folk music generally and they epitomise the image of an Irish Ballad Group.”

“There is still love and respect for the music. When The Dubliners name was retired in 2012, it sowed the seed for creating a show that would tell the story of The Dubliners, and keep their music alive.”
