With a musical career that spans over 25 years this week's FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY pays tribute to one of the most successful bands from the West of Ireland: THE SAW DOCTORS.

Gay Byrne chats to founding members, Leo and Davy. How the name came about, the stories behind the N17 and I Useta Love Her...are all revealed as well as performed in front of a huge group of their lively fans!

As well as performing all the hits the boys talk about how growing up in Tuam was all the inspiration that they needed to write their great hits. They discuss life on the road, what it was like growing up in Tuam, Davy's failed attempt at emigrating, his joy at playing in the Royal Albert Hall with his Mam and Dad in the audience. Tragedy also inspired songs, and Leo talks about the death of his brother and why he wrote I Hope We'll Meet Again.
