Laochra, which followed the Allianz Football League Final, thrilled fans of all counties and colours, bringing together more than 3,500 performers. It was Lambe, however, the former Celtic Woman star, who brought the crowd to its feet with her memorable rendition of The Foggy Dew. Lisa now heads to historic King House in Boyle, to star with Simon Morgan in the western premiere of Myles Dungan’s new 1916 show – The Count, The Countess & The Tommy. Friday 13th May is the date set for the first-ever west of Ireland performance of the show, which centres on the life and music of the celebrated Irish tenor Count John McCormack, and features some of the best-known songs of a hundred years ago.
