The Mary Wallopers second album - Irish Rock’n’Roll - was recently released to universal acclaim, reaching the Top 40 in the UK and No 2 on the Irish Album Charts. Some of the praise for Irish Rock ’n’ Roll:
“The punk spirit of Irish traditional music...Irish Rock'n'Roll is impossible to shake off.” Mojo 4/5
“A raucous power… not seen since the heyday of The Pogues” Uncut 8/10
“Revitalising Irish trad for a new generation with rowdy reinterpretations of hand-me-down odes to sex, devilry and drink (mainly drink)… they elevate the displaced and the downtrodden, sticking two fingers up to the establishment and, in doing so, yank a thread that unites all rebel music from folk to punk and rap” The Guardian
“An essential step-up for one of the most defiant yet inherently honest forces in modern Irish music.” Hot Press 9/10
