Pogueology came together in 2015 with a view to recreating the energy, mayhem and sheer party atmosphere of A Pogues live gig.

The seven-piece Laois based band consist of some of the finest musicians in the area who all share a love of the music of the Celtic/Punk sound that is The Pogues. The band have played many gigs across the country and were asked by MCD to play this years Trinity Ball in Dublin.

Pogueology received national press while playing at the 2017 Electric Picnic. The band were just into their set at Jimmy Lees Juke Joint when the floor collapsed due to an over-attended and enthusiastic crowd. The band got a late night slot on the Sunday at the Salty Dog stage where Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan came along to hear the group and have a drink or two with them after the show. Shane has endorsed the band in the past.

All the Pogues favourites are covered in the set including Streams of Whiskey, Sally McLennane, Fiesta, Fairytale of New York, A Pair of Brown Eyes and A Rainy Night in Soho.

The Pogues started in London in 1982 fronted by Shane MacGowan. The band reached international prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. MacGowan left the band in 1991 but the band continued first with Joe Strummer and then with Spider Stacy on vocals before breaking up in 1996.
