How it all Began. Arklow Youth Club Choir out of which the Band was later formed. A CD of the choir was launched December 2008. Have a listen to one of the tracks.



Here is a track from the CD featuring the first recording of the band made in 1969 "Ain't we got Fun". Keep listening to it as it is played twice, second time a little faster.
