Event details

Legends of Irish music and song, The Fureys return for their 5th concert here at The Apex on St Patrick’s night.

Renowned for their hit songs, 'I Will Love You', 'When You Were Sweet Sixteen', 'The Green Fields of France', 'The Red Rose Café', 'From Clare to Here', 'Her Father Didn’t Like Me Anyway', 'Leaving Nancy' and 'Steal Away', The Fureys have been entertaining audiences worldwide for 43 years.

The oldest of the brothers, Eddie Furey left home in 1966 and travelled to Scotland at the time of the great folk revival where he shared accommodation with then unknown folk singers Billy Connolly, Gerry Rafferty and Alex Campbell.

In 1969, with his brother Finbar, he was the special guest for The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem throughout the USA and Canada. In 1971 he moved to mainland Europe where he toured for seven years. Dave Stewart from the Eurythmics has credited Eddie with teaching him his first chords on guitar when they met up in the North East of England while Dave was still a teenager.
