By staff reporter @laoisnews

Iconic balladeers, The Wolfe Tones, return to The Heritage Hotel, Portlaoise, at Easter weekend in what promises to be another unique and memorable performance.

Now in an unbelievable 54th year on the road, The Wolfe Tones continue to pack out venues worldwide, and this performance on Saturday April 15 will be no exception.

The Wolfe Tones are one of Ireland’s most iconic and loved groups, and anyone who witnessed their special 1916 commemorative show will understand why this group continue to enthral audiences wherever they perform.

Emerging from the ballad boom of the early 1960s, The Wolfe Tones started out on a career which has taken them to the heights of not just Irish, but international entertainment.

After 54 years on the road, the performance of arguably Ireland’s greatest ballad singer, Tommy Byrne, will once again be a memorable experience - Joe McDonnell, Kevin Barry, The Ballad of James Connolly, Grace, Streets of New York, as well as many more ballads, will provide a not to be missed Wolfe Tones experience.

The Heritage show is one of only three opportunities to see the group over Easter weekend, with appearances in Cork and Belfast also scheduled.

Tickets, priced €30, are available from the Heritage Hotel reception or directly online from
