Born to west of Ireland parents Thomas and Peggy Gallagher, it’s no surprise that Liam Gallagher swings by every so often for a bit of a break.

What is probably more surprising, however, is that he is so eager to join in on a local Sunday night seisún.

Still, that’s exactly what happened earlier this week, when the former Oasis frontman called into JJ Finan’s pub in the town of Charlestown in Co. Mayo – where his mother grew up.

Delighting town residents present on the evening (one even made sure to shout out “go on, Gallagher!”), a guitar-wielding Liam joined local musicians in one corner of the well-known public house.

In one accompanying video clip later posted online, cups of milky tea can be seen alongside pints on the table in front of Mr Gallagher and his fellow performers.

Excitingly, the same clip appears to show the 42-year-old rocker singing previously unheard solo material. 

Indeed, the song could well contain a reference to his estranged brother Noel, 48, who quit Oasis back in 2009 – five years before the group was eventually disbanded entirely.

The lyrics include the lines: "Yes I know, I've been wrong. Didn't do what I was told. Yes I know, I've been wrong. Didn't do what I was told. I ain't looking for no 9-5. Sick of wasting all my precious time. Cos it's alright. Cos it's alright now."

Noel’s latest solo album, Chasing Yesterday, was released in February, and Liam also sings the lyrics: "When I wake up and I hear you say, there's no love worth chasing yesterday."

Liam had flown into Knock airport – where he was required to take the obligatory ‘Mayo for Sam’ snap – late last week.

On arrival, Liam popped into the local Mace to pick up no fewer than nine bags of Tayto, five bags of Galaxy Minstrels, six Wispa Golds… and some shaving foam.

He also swung by Charlestown GAA club for photos there.

Reports suggest that he remains in the area now, though he intends returning to Britain shortly. 




It has been reported that Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid are going to be having an Irish wedding after all.

The couple were said to be blown away by Ashford Castle which lies on the Mayo-Galway border and are planning on tying the knot there at the end of the year.

This Irish wedding will then be followed by a massive Malibu party to celebrate their nuptials stateside.

Friends actress, Courteney, and Snow Patrol musician, Johnny, became engaged back in June and had been spotted in Ireland this past month.

Will this make for a Friends reunion? Well, they did go to London after all!
