There's been a lot of talk in the news this week regarding the centenary of Michael Collins, but one Irish band is planning to celebrate it in a somewhat unusual manner.

Belfast hip-hop trio Kneecap, who sing in Irish and are known for their republican stance with songs like 'Get Your Brits Out', are hosting a 'Michael Collins Revenge Party' in music venue Connolly's of Leap, 40km from where Collins was killed in an ambush at Beal na Blath in 1921.

The two-day event runs on Saturday August 27th and Sunday August 28th, and sees the trio promise "two days of tunes and pints with some of our favourite artists", which include Jelani Blackman, Mango, Arveene, John Francis Flynn and Lisa Oh.

Return buses will be available from Cork City, with details TBA - but you can buy tickets from this link now.

Kneecap, meanwhile, have been in the news for other reasons over the past week, after unveiling a new mural that depicts a PSNI van in flames, with the text "níl fáilte roimh an RUC", or "the RUC are not welcome". The trio have defended the piece as "fine art".
