Dennis Herlihy (R.I.P.)

dennis herlihy

In September 2019 the world lost much loved and admired Cork sound engineer and tour manager Dennis Herlihy. Dennis was tour manager for Aslan, Donovan and The Wolfe Tones to name but three and worked on many gigs and events over the years. A complete list of acts he worked with may well be beyond our scope but we thought we’d mention those featured on this site. To the best of our knowledge, the following acts recorded music with Dennis at the helm: 3355409s, Adolf Grunt, Bennys Head, Berserk, Berlin, Burning Embers, Cypress, Mine!, Expresso Mambo, Hooky, The Boy The Boy, Porcelyn Tears, Shimpu Zig Zag, Anthony & De Confidence, Max Von Rap, The O’Malleys, Belsonic Sound, Power Of Dreams, Very Much In Love, Light A Big Fire, The Frank & Walters and Idol Joy. Jim Casey has kindly lent us a selection of tapes belonging to Dennis featuring many of the bands listed and we hope to feature some of these in 2020.

    A good friend and great engineer. IDOL JOY was Us back in the mid eighties and Denis engineered and produced Our first two EPs one of being Paradise Days which was placed at no 5 by Dave Fanning in his charts and featured on the COMET 2 LP. Much missed also by SIMPLY MINDS (tribute) Cork who Denis did all of our gigs. RIP .

  2. Thanks John, have added Idol Joy to the list.

    Would you have a band photo by any chance?
