The Rock ‘n Roll Kids Charlie McGettigan & Paul Harrington play the Garage Theatre for one night only in October 2022. The 1994 Eurovision Song Contest winners make their first visit to Monaghan for what will be a night to remember.

“Rock ‘n’ Roll Kids” was the winning song of the Eurovision Song Contest 1994, written by Brendan Graham and performed for Ireland by Paul Harrington and Charlie McGettigan. The song was Ireland’s sixth overall victory and represented an unprecedented third consecutive time that the same country had won the contest.

In the late nineties Paul was the performer of choice for many of the A-list celebrities that would frequent the VIP Room in Dublin’s most prestigious nightspot. It was here that Michael Flatley and Paul reconnected after 10 years and was so impressed that he created a role for him as principal singer in his most recent dance extravaganza ‘Celtic Tiger’. This saw Paul performing in arenas across Europe and North America, including Wembley, and the most famous venue in the world Madison Square Gardens.

These days Charlie tours both here in Ireland and abroad. He presents “The Saturday Connection” on Shannonside/Northern Sound Radio, a two-hour programme where he previews live music and theatrical events, interviews guests from the world of arts and entertainment and plays an eclectic mix of music and song on CD.
