Local lad Cian Morrin, who is part of Louis Walsh’s newest chart-topping band Hometown, will be back in Castlebar on Sunday night (April 5 ) when they play the Royal Theatre Castlebar as part of their nationwide tour. Cian, from Rhinshina in Breaffy, first came to attention when he appeared on The X Factor in 2012 when he was a secondary school student in St Gerald’s College in Castlebar where he made it through a number of rounds. Cian had gone on to start studying to become a national school teacher before the call came for him to become one-sixth of Hometown last year.
Their debut single ‘Where I Belong’ went straight in at number one in the Irish singles chart last December and they have just released their new single ‘Cry for Help’. Tickets cost €25 and are available for the show from the Royal Theatre and from Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.
