CRYSTAL Swing star Mary Burke has released her first solo single.

Mary, one-third of the popular family group, has released song ‘Fool for Loving You’.

In the video for the new song, she heads on a date with a mystery man in Limerick.

She watches the video of the pair’s date as she pines about her lost love.

She then replays videos of the couple drinking wine, sharing an ice cream cone and having fun  on a fairground ride.



Mary was the driving force behind Crystal Swing, along with daughter Dervala and son Derek.

They burst onto the scene in 2010 when their video for song ‘He drinks Tequila’ went viral.

The band performed live on the Late Late Show and even made an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show in the US.

The song charted at number 18 in the Irish charts.
