(Damien & Paul McIlroy with Tony Fisher who is seated)

The Blarney Brothers is an indefatigable three-man musical outfit that has been at the heart of South Africa’s music scene for four decades, livening up parties and gala events.

The three Irish-born musicians - siblings Paul and Damien McIlroy and fellow band member Tony Fisher - all settled in South Africa in the 70’s, then joined forces to form their own professional band in August 1974.

While scores of Blarney Brothers fans need no introduction to the famous group, new recruits can log onto for perspectives on their rich performance history, as well as the titles of their CD’s, and other information.

They will give two performances of St Paddy’s Party with The Blarney Brothers today (March 22) at 14h00 and 18h30 at the Rhumbelow Theatre Pietermaritzburg which is located at the Allan Wilson Shellhole, 5 Durban Road in Pietermaritzburg. Venue opens 90 minutes before show for a picnic meal. Tickets R120 (R100 pensioners). Bring food picnic baskets and there is a cash bar available (no alcohol may be brought on to the premises). There is limited secure parking and booking is essential at Computicket or contact Roland on 082 499 8636 or email:
