Emo rock band Greywind have exploded on popular social platform TikTok reaching over 1.6 million views so far this month.

Their songs ‘Afterthoughts’ and ‘Car Spin’ went viral in what is the hottest social media platform in the world, gaining them massive music industry interest and thousands of new fans around the world.

The brother sister duo from Ballydribbeen, Paul and Steph O'Sullivan, have been on the music scene six years - with 2m streams on Spotify in 2020 for their album 'Afterthoughts' - taking the world by storm with their unique style of music.

Their rise to fame began after posting their first single 'Afterthoughts' online - and unbelievably almost immediately received interest from Universal Records, Sony, Emeli Sandé's management and Warner Brothers, all asking who their record label was.

The Killarney duo have previously been called 'The best band to come out of Kerry' by The Irish Times and have performed live at some of the biggest festivals in the world such as Reading and Leeds Festival, the Isle of Wight Festival, Download Festival, Rock Am Ring and have supported The Coronas at the INEC Arena.

“It’s been a crazy few weeks seeing our songs reach over a million views on TikTok," guitarist Paul O'Sullivan told the Killarney Advertiser.

"Seeing so many new people from all over the world discovering our music means so much to us.”

Greywind have an exciting year ahead with a UK headline tour announced for September. Their debut album 'Afterthoughts' can be found on all streaming platforms and you can keep up to date with their adventures on TikTok, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter @greywindband.

Killarney cyclist Sam Bolger (18) has been selected as one of four riders for the Belgian Project – one of the most prestigious stepping stones for Irish riders with ambitions to turn professional.

Northern Ireland-based Belgian Danny Blondell is the man behind the project.

For the last 15 years Blondell selects between four and six Irish riders and sends them to Belgium where they stay with local families and contest pro and semi-pro races.

As a race commentator Blondell is well placed to decide who is deserving of inclusion in the project.

Over the first six months of the year he makes decisions while attending early season races.

Those lucky enough to get selected go to live and race in Belgium for the second six months of the year.

Bolger, from Lewis Road, was selected after winning the junior race in the Cycling Ireland National Road Series in Mayo in March and the Orwell Stage Race in County Wicklow in June.

“He is delighted, it is a very big deal,” his father Paul told the Killarney Advertiser.

“He has had a very good year and the wins in Mayo and Wicklow secured the Belgium Project.”

Bolger will head to Belgium in late July and after to the Junior Tour of Ireland which takes place in County Clare between July 12 and 17.
