Limerick was established in 2016 bringing together 4 talented musicians who have a passion for hi-energy music broadly representing the Celtic rock genres, including originals, classics and Trad tunes. Limerick's slogan of "Modern Celtic Band" reflects the incorporation of crowd pleasers into their shows to ensure that everybody young and old and in-between, are either toe tapping, beer stomping, or up singing and dancing whilst being mesmerized by their roaming "Pied Piper like" Fiddle player.
Limerick have released a 5 track EP called "Up Yer Kilts" which showcases the band's versatility and live performances and features 2 vocalists, fiddle, piano accordion, guitar, bass and drums.
Limerick's live performances have been at some of the best venues and festivals across Southeast QLD and Northern NSW. Limerick have been a featured band at venues such as Finn McCools (One of QLD’s, largest Irish pubs), Irish Club Hotel Toowoomba, Scots in the Bush Festival, International Tartan Day Festival, Festuri Multicultural Festival, The Bunker in Eumundi, Twin Towns Club Tweed Heads and Paddyfest, a St Pats festival held annually at Eagle Farm Raceway. Limerick have established themselves as one of the popular Celtic bands in Australia and are a favored band for all occasions.
