Irish Stars in Video For Ronnie's Ballad

19 Feb 2008
Award winning director and ex-Frames bass player John Carney has directed the video for The Ballad of Ronnie Drew.

Filmed over two days at Dublin's Windmill Lane studios in January, Carney and his team were on hand to document the recording and the video magically captures this unique tribute to the legendary Ronnie Drew.



The result is a fly-on-the-wall- video; Christy Moore, Shane MacGowan, Damien Dempsey, Andrea Corr, Sinead O'Connor and Moya Brennan among others are seen at work, along with members of The Dubliners, Kila and U2.

Produced by John Reynolds, "The Ballad of Ronnie Drew" will be released on digital download from February 22nd and a CD single will follow on February 29th in Ireland only. Profits from the release will go directly to the Irish Cancer Society here.
