Congratulations are in order for The Coronas' Conor Egan – he's officially a married man!

The band all came together yesterday to celebrate the happy day, where Conor wed his longtime love, Niamh.


A post shared by Róisín O (@roisinomusic) on

The Coronas front man Danny arrived to the wedding with his sister, Roisin O, and their mother, Mary Black.

Roisin took to Instagram to share a picture of the family all outside Foxrock church, where Conor and Niamh said their vows.

Roisin looked gorgeous in a black polka dot skirt and bright pink top. 


A post shared by Danny O'Reilly (@dannythecoronas) on

Danny later took to the social media site to share a picture of him and his friends, captioning it, "Wedding bants."

And to add further celebration to the day, The Coronas' new album Trust The Wire hit the number one spot in the charts yesterday.

Hopefully more pictures of the special day will be released soon (in other words, we can't wait to see the dress!).



We all know that sometimes the best way to get your mind off a break-up, is to get to work, and it seems like that's what Danny O'Reilly is going to do.

Just as the news broke of his break-up with Holly Carpenter yesterday, The Coronas front man is set to play a gig in Galway today – absolutely free.


But if you're there at the moment, you better be quick because he's set to take to the stage at 2pm outside Enable Ireland on High Street (opposite Sonny Molloy's bar).

The Front Door announced the news earlier today. “If you are in town be sure to call in or tag any friends that are fans!”

If only we could get a helicopter down…



Congratulations are in order for Danny O Reilly, he has just been named as a new host for TodayFM.

The Irish radio station just announced their new line-up for the weekend, which included The Corona's star and Hector O Heochagain.

The frontman is gearing up to host a two-month special, A Different Side on Sundays, which will start at 4pm.

And the topic of his show sounds pretty damn cool.

Danny wants to celebrate the role that music has on Ireland's biggest stars, which will include sports stars, musicians, actors and more.

We can't wait to give it a listen!

And in more deadly music news, Danny's sister, Róisín O has just announced that she will be the supporting act for The Coronas and The Academic at Cork's The Marquee.

The gigs will take place on June 24 and 25, and it's set to be a weekend full of craic with these bands performing.

Róisín O is also set to headline our gig in The Sugar Club on Wednesday July 6th.

Raising awareness of dating abuse and raising funds for Women's Aid is the name of the game on the night, and if you want to get involved, you can get your early bird tickets right here, right now. 


Danny O’Reilly has hit out at a political ad this week after they used his name. The front man was described as being "shafted" by the radio industry.

The Coronas member took to social media to name and shame the campaign and said he never was asked to be a part of it.

The campaign claims that Irish talent is not given enough airtime on radio stations.

However, the singer did write that "the current legislation affecting what constitutes as 'Irish music' needs to be reviewed."


They both stayed silent about the reason for their split at the time, but three years on Laura Whitmore has opened up about the heartbreak of parting ways with Danny O'Reilly.

Laura split from the Coronas frontman in 2012, and says the break-up was a "massive" shift in her life.

The pain of ending a two-year relationship wasn't helped by the fact that the Bray native was in Australia at the time, working on I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.

"Break-ups are hard but I couldn’t even go out and get drunk with my girlfriends," she recalls. In the end, Laura's mum flew from Ireland to be with her on set.

Although Laura is still keeping tight-lipped about why things went sour wth her ex, she stresses that ending the relationship was the right thing to do.

"We broke up for a reason. I broke up with him for a reason." she tells The Mirror.

"I went through that massive break-up while I was doing live TV on the other side of the world.

"People could write about it, people could guess about it, and at the end of the day I was just a girl who was really hurt."

Back in May, a reconciliation seemed imminent when Laura and Danny were spotted kissing in London's Primrose Hill Park. But while the couple are definitely not an item these days, the presenter says they do remain on good terms.

"I’m actually good friends with Danny, shockingly. I actually got a text from him today.

"So, for me, there’s no bad feeling."

Back in July, the MTV star was pictured on holidays in Ibiza with Sunset Suns rocker Rory Williams, just weeks after being papped kissing him on a London street.

It's unclear whether the pair are still together, but either way Laura says being in the spotlight certainly doesn't help her with new relationships.

"It’s a bit s**t. You could be on a first date and it is awkward, and I’m a girl who is nervous and thinking, ‘Do I like this boy?, and suddenly everyone gets a picture and they write about it.

"You’re mortified because you’ve just met someone. You’re just a girl at the end of the day."



The Coronas are supposed to be going on a world tour this November. However, it looks like New Zealand will be one country they will have to take off their wish-list.

Frontman Danny O’Reilly has admitted that he is a “wanted man” in the country and it doesn’t think he’ll be allowed in any time soon.

He was speaking with Spin 1038 when it was revealed that there is a warrant out for his arrest which means it is “proving difficult” for the band’s manager to sort out a visit for the boys.

“There is a warrant for my arrest and this is the most rock ‘n’ roll thing that’s ever happened to me, but I am going to say it’s for a speeding ticket so it is not that cool.”

He explained that he was 21 at the time and on a trip with his friends when he ended up getting himself into some trouble. The band's manager Jim Lawless has now been tasked with sorting out the issue so the band can get themselves in front of a New Zealand crowd. 

Before they jet off around the world though, the band will be playing some gigs closer to home. They have been scheduled to headline the Cork Jazz Festival on October 24, alongside acts such as the Boomtown Rats, Aslan, The Drifters and Gary Numan.

We can't help but wonder though, what does mom Mary Black think about Danny's criminal snafu?
