Westlife added to Lissadell House line-up

The boys are Sligo-bound on July 30.

Westlife are to make a July 30 trip to Lissadell House in County Sligo for a 10,000-capacity open air gig.

"It's fantastic,” enthuses Louis Walsh. “We've got three dates in Belfast, the Croke Park gig in June, the Live At The Marquee show in Cork and now we've added Sligo,” Louis Walsh told Hot Press. “Fans love Westlife. Despite everything else that's happening, they're shifting a phenomenal number of tickets. Pop sells.”

Westlife sang at Gerry Ryan's funeral yesterday, performing their hit single, the Brendan Graham song 'You Raise Me Up', with the aid of the Dublin Gospel Choir.
