Irish singer to play two concerts at DART stations later this month

Connolly Station, one of two locations where Colin O'Shea will play his new single.

Colin O'Shea is set to play a special concert at Heuston and Connolly DART Stations to celebrate the release of his new single The Stars.

The new release, the fourth single from his album Scars and Tones, is a tribute to the singer's mother who passed away after battling breast cancer five years ago.

The single is accompanied by a simple yet powerfully effective animated video which conveys the message of the song using beautiful line drawings and illustrated lyrics against a paper background.

To celebrate the release of ‘The Stars’, Colin will play all-ages shows in two DART stations on Saturday, February 23: Heuston Station from 11am to 12.30pm and Connolly Station from 1.30pm to 3pm. For the price of a DART ticket you can hear Colin perform ‘The Stars’, amongst other songs from his album.

Colin will also play Upstairs in Whelan’s on Saturday, May 11.

He is currently working on his second studio album.
