The Wolfe Tones have officially been named as the most popular act at this year’s Electric Picnic music festival.
Organisers confirmed the group attracted the biggest crowd by some distance to the Electric Arena tent in the festival’s 19-year history.
Aerial images showed the tent wasn’t nearly big enough to cater for the crowds who flocked to see The Wolfe Tones perform on the final day of the festival as thousands more gathered outside.
Most notable from all the footage of the performance was the fact that group’s audience was overwhelmingly young, confirming they now have a whole new generation of fans who were singing every word of every song.
The hugely successful appearance of The Wolfe Tones at Electric Picnic has not gone down well with some, including RTE presenter Joe Duffy, who was seen this morning wandering around the streets of Clontarf in his dressing gown while foaming at the mouth and mumbling something about the Ra.
Concerned onlookers called an ambulance and Duffy was driven away at speed towards The Mater Hospital.
Unfortunately for Joe, the paramedics had a Wolfe Tones CD blaring in the ambulance and his head exploded before they reached their destination.
