A talented Killarney singer-songwriter will today (Friday) release his latest single 'Nothing Sweeter’ across all major streaming platforms. Colin Foley (26) from Beaufort, who goes by 'Colin Andrew' is excited to release his latest work which he describes as "a bittersweet number" and "a deeply personal memoir of a past relationship". Written over a two-year period this song is an emotional logbook, covering everything from new beginnings to untimely endings.

It's the fourth single from Colin, who returned home from Edinburgh at Christmas due to COVID.

The former ISK student, who is son of Marion and Brendan Foley, studied music at Colaiste Stefon Naofa in Cork and worked on cruise ships for some time before taking up a contract with Disney World Orlando which was cut short due to the pandemic.

Following the release of his debut single in 2019, Colin has been rising through the ranks at an impressive rate. Making his live TV debut on TG4 and BBC 2 NI alongside The High Kings and Daniel O'Donnell, he established himself as an exciting new artist.

Using this momentum he struck again with consecutive follow-ups which were accompanied by well directed and creative music videos. The video for his third single ‘Loving You In Vain’, directed by viral sensation Threemey, had almost 15,000 views on YouTube in the first two weeks.

Colin has been gigging around Killarney town since he was aged 14 and in more recent times has also received extensive national radio support from the likes of Radio Kerry, RedFM, Quarantine FM and has been favourably reviewed by Covert Music Club.

Teaming up with producer Barry O’Connell during the lockdowns he said that he has been concentrating on his own music and has dreams of touring the world.

With an EP in the works, Colin is set to make his mark as a serious contender in the Irish music scene.

"This is single number four. I've had three singles out since 2019, one every six months," Colin, who has successfully built up a reputation for emotional, powerful musicianship, told the Killarney Advertiser this week.

Playing music since he got a guitar at the age of 11, Colin explained that he takes some of his inspiration from Irish musicians James Vincent McMorrow and Foy Vance.

"They struck me at the right time. I saw them doing what I wanted to do."

And he added that he hopes to stay writing music and playing full-time.

"The dream would be to write my own music and tour the world."

It’s back – and not before time – the hugely popular Killarney Rotary Club evening of Wine and Art will return this November.

The pandemic enforced its absence and now every effort is being made to make up for lost time.

Widely regarded as one of the social highlights of the year in Killarney, this year’s gathering will take place in the Great Southern Killarney on Wednesday, November 30, commencing at 7.15pm.

Tickets, which will be available at the door, are priced at €20 and all proceeds raised on the night will go to deserving local charities and community organisations.

Over the years the evening of wine and art has raised tens of thousands of Euro for great causes and the 2022 proceeds will be of enormous benefit to the chosen groups.

This year, once again, the event is being held in association with Daly’s SuperValu and supported by Killarney Brewing and Distilling Company.

Rotary Club President, Rayla Tadjimatova, has appealed to all artists who might like to showcase their work on the night to get in touch with club members, as soon as possible, to guarantee inclusion.

“We are reaching out not only to artists who have supported the event in the past but to any new artists who wish to take the opportunity to place their work in front of a very appreciative local audience of up to one thousand people on the night,” she said.

Those interested should email killarneyrotaryclub@gmail.com as soon as possible.
