Island Records turned them down but Chrysalis Records immediately snapped them up and Tír na nÓg were on their way playing folk clubs and building up a following. The advantage in being with a record company like Chrysalis was the clout that such an association carried. They were able to perform to bigger audiences and soon they were playing bigger concerts and college tours in Britain and Europe. Leo and Sonny got back together in 1985 and toured occasionally but, after a long absence, they released an album, Live at Sirius, which got them gigging together again and they have returned to Britain on several occasions since. When a musical partnership produces something special it is usually lasting. Long interludes only seem to re-enforce that bit of elusive magic. That should be the case when Tír na nÓg hit the road this month. They should not be missed.
