DANNY O'REILLY woke up one morning last week and had, he says, “serious quarantine blues.”

He thought that the band he formed with Graham Knox and Conor Egan in Terenure College in 2003 “was finished, because of our stupid, unfortunate name. I thought there would never be live gigs again; all sorts of things were going through my head.”

He continued: "But I think now I’m more self-aware than I used to be, and I’m better at dealing with those moments when they do come along, and also I’ve got a great support system of friends and family that are always there for me.”
