It was released 20 years ago and remains Ireland's biggest-selling album.
Last night, a documentary aired on RTE last night that shed some light on why David Gray's 'White Ladder' has been so phenomenally successful with Irish audiences.
'David Gray: Ireland's Greatest Hit' featured contributions from the Manchester-born musician, as well as the likes of Marc Almond, Glen Hansard and more.
Given that Gray was due to play three dates at Dublin's 3Arena on his 'White Ladder 20th Anniversary Tour' before current events, it's clear that he still has an ardent Irish fanbase - and many of them tuned in last night.
Many also took to Twitter to share their memories of the album.

@donalscannell That was absolutely brilliant and poignantly timed. @DavidGray is a treasure. One of the best albums ever. Loved looking back at the days before cell phones destroyed gigs and people connected with great music. Thank you. #whiteladder #DavidGray @TheHighKings

Was always too cool for school back in the day to admit liking David Gray. That RTE show though about him and White Ladder was excellent. thing @rte do really well. Really thought the marketing people were asleep at the wheel.If ever a bobble head was needed it was for him. 🤔🤣

There’s some amount of memories coming flooding back this evening watching the White Ladder doc on RTE. That album soundtracked some of my best memories, and every time I listen to it they come flooding back...#whiteladder #letgoyourheart pic.twitter.com/QlcsK3Szt7
