The Life O'Riley: Banned from more pubs than we are invited back to!

It would probably be a good idea to let you know from the outset that we are NOT good role models for your kids!! 

About us

Fancy spending the night in Police Cells with a bunch of drunken reprobates you only met 3 hours previously? Get detailed information on Gigs.

The Life O'Riley have been delivering Irish music to often reluctant audiences since 2003 and during this time we have made many friends and had some cracking nights!!...We have also pissed off quite a few landlords too, mind you!


The Life O'Riley - Irish music served on a bed of Marmite!!...You are either gonna love it, or you are going to hate it....but either way, you are NOT likely to forget the taste in a hurry!!


How would we best describe ourselves?...Take a dash of The Pogues at their drunken best, add a pinch of The Tossers, a couple of splashes of The RumJacks, one or two teaspoons of Sir Reg and a heaped ladel of Flogging Molly and tip the whole lot into a blender!....Hit the ON button and STAND WELL BACK!


If you feel some perverse need to associate with any of the band members on a more intimate level  then pop along to

 More Shite.


2014 thus far as seen the release of our LIVE album *Rough as F*cking Arseholes!!* and it delivers what it says on the tin!!... This is NOT a mastered offering and more of a representation of what you are actually likely to get at a LIVE event disgraced by our good selves


2013 saw sees the band release our 4th Album, the aptly named "Three Sheets to the Wined!" Unashamedly stealing some of the best songs from Sir Reg, The RumJacks, The Tossers, The Pogues and Flogging Molly. We had ourselves a very heady mix of "We dont give a shit!!", Packaged it up and flogged it for a fiver a time!!
