Liam Reilly : A Life



Liam Reilly was a once-off. An Irish entertainer with a career that lasted almost seven decades - that was dictated by pure original music from start to finish. As a quarter of that beloved Irish institution, Bagatelle, he achieved unrivalled homeland success with the Bray/Dundalk connection. Number 1 singles, platinum albums, sold out concerts and music that connected with the Irish diaspora worldwide.

His uncanny knack of writing material for that disenfranchised youth in a dark period of a decade when thousands where scattered to the four corners of the globe due to crippling unemployment, rising dole queues and little hope at home still resonates to this day.
