FOXTALES

  • Kingston's Market Street Killorglin, County Kerry Ireland (map)

The full origins of this band are somewhat lost to the annals of time. This is most likely due to memory loss from partying in first year of college but some research has been done via looking through embarrassing Facebook pictures and going through old text messages translated by guess work. It is fact that two of the band members met in Coláiste Stiofáin Naofa , cork city while dossing from a lecture on Law. There was also a third member ,who was part of the early stages of “foxtales” ... which was known as “Boots&cats”,who was a poet and a lunatic . Badly named and badly organised the band went from pub to pub looking for open mic nights to earn free pints of beer which didn't generally help with performances but made for good laughs and general cheer. The band had some success on the streets of cork city after the hour of 12 am busking to rambling crowds of students who may have just been throwing coins at the trio to damage instruments and facial features... the facts are not clear.
After college the trio disbanded and didn't see each other for a few months which was for the best as tensions had run high due to the constant changing of arrangements during performances. Gemma went back to karaoke, kyle got a gig as a trad backing guitarist and Cathal resided in dingle town as a minstrel and sometime troubadour. more to come ...
