Eire Og, formed in Glasgow, Scotland in the early 1990s, was a modern Irish rebel band, which has toured the United Kingdom, Ireland, Europe and the USA extensively throughout the mid - late nineties.
What made them unique was their introduction of the marching drums to their music, a style that has subsequently been copied by many bands of this genre ever since. It gave them an unmistakable and uncompromising sound that became the soundtrack of an entire generation during a period of civil strife prior to the IRA ceasefire of the late nineties.
The band was led by Irish republican supporter, Glasgow-born folk rock singer Gary Og, who is now a successful solo artist.
