Conor describes seeing the band "step out of their comfort zone" at Glastonbury as "a highlight of my life".

" I first saw them in Croke Park in 2005 on the Saturday night, I'll never forget how high up we were (I think the term is 'nosebleed seats') but it was unforgettable".

Conor saw the 360 Tour an incredible five times. "Once in Wembley, twice in Croker and twice in Brussels".

"I also waited outside the lad's hotel on the morning of the second Belgium gig to get photos and autographs but my arm wasn't long enough to get any signatures unfortunately".
