Rock ‘n’ roll life ... Nah I’m back in me ma’s

MOST people can’t wait to flee the nest, but not Kodaline frontman Steve Garrigan.

Even though he’s in one of Ireland’s biggest music groups and is enjoying chart-topping success around the world, the 25-year-old revealed that he recently moved back in with his parents in Swords.

Hit singer Steve told The Herald that getting his own bachelor pad is not high on the to-do list at the moment, although he is hoping to move to London eventually.

The boys in high-flying band Kodaline have just completed sold-out tours in America, Australia and Japan.

They’re based back on home soil and Steve is making the most of getting his laundry done for free.

“I’m living at home. It’s really cool getting your washing done. It’s actually grand, I’m rarely home and I basically live out of my suitcase because we’re travelling so much.”

Steve said that he and band mates Mark Prendergrast, Vinnie May and Jason Boland have been humbled by the hugely positive reaction from fans to their music.

The chart-toppers were in the Irish capital last night to headline the seventh annual FM104 Help a Dublin Child gig in aid of the ISPCC. Last year’s concert raised €57,500.
