NEXT IRELAND TOUR: APRIL 5 TO 14, 2013:
Ken is pleased to announce his next tour
in the spring of 2013! He will personally be your guide for this very special trip which begins
in Dublin, continues to Belfast (including the new Titanic museum) and Derry in
the North then on to Sligo and Westport before returning to Dublin. But, there is so much
more! Ken's personal message about the tour, along with the complete itinerary
and sign up information, may be found here: www.kenomalley.com/irelandtour2013.cfm
NOTRE DAME CD: "FOREVER
Ken and his
partner, Notre Dame graduate John Tabis, have written a number of rollicking tailgating
songs in support of the most famous “Irish” football team in America,
the “Fightin’ Irish” of the University of Notre Dame. These traditional Irish
song melodies, blending a mix of football chanting and beer toasting, give the
Notre Dame fans even more to cheer about.
This rousing collection of "Fighting Irish"
tailgating songs (and two bonus tracks) outsold all other CDs in the campus bookstore
and catalog in its first month of release. For more information (and how you can
get a copy) talk to Ken at a show or go to www.kenomalley.com/notredameforeverirish.cfm
This is a must have collectible
for any Notre Dame fan and will make a terrific gift for those who live the dream
that is Notre Dame football. Go Irish!
