Father and his two sons perform stunning rendition of Parting Glass in Irish pub

A father and his sons got up onstage at an Irish pub to perform a wonderful version of the classic song ‘The Parting Glass’.

Seamus Geaney visited Fitzy’s Pub, Crosshaven to support his son Lorcan (23) who was performing.

Seamus and his other son Cillian (22) decided to join Lorcan on stage to perform The Parting Glass, which was made famous by Liam Clancy.

Lorcan told the Irish Independent: “We really didn’t expect it to blow up like this.

“My dad and brother just decided to come along to the gig I was playing that evening and it just kinda turned into a great music session with everybody there.”

The Geaneys are a musical family and Lorcan and Cillian have sang from a very early age after encouragement from their mother and father who both have a keen interest in music.

“We pretty much grew up singing at any family events or functions we were at and as soon as myself and my brother were old enough we started playing in different bars around Cork City!

“We gig individually every weekend but we often get gigs in pubs or for weddings where the three of us can play together and they are the most enjoyable.

“We really didn’t expect anything to come of Saturday night so we are all a bit shocked.”

The people in the pub were totally silent throughout the stunning performance and erupted in cheers at the end of the song.
