Mumford and Sons will play two Irish dates this December in support of their second album Babel.

The folksters will play the Odyssey Arena in Belfast on December 15th (£31.50) and The O2 in Dublin the following night on December 16th (€39.05). Tickets will go on sale this Friday at 9am and we expect them to be snapped up pretty darn quickly.

Meanwhile, stay tuned for a review of Babel on the site later this afternoon.
