Damien Dempsey makes his debut appearance on 'The Late Late Show' performing his single 'Dublin Town'.
Gay Byrne introduces twenty-one-year-old singer-songwriter and Ballyfermot Rock School graduate Damien Dempsey as 'Dempsey'.
This song is inspired by what you would call the non-tourist side of Dublin, the non-Eurovision song contest end of Dublin.
'Dublin Town' is a song about poverty and unemployment in Dublin and became one of the tracks on his 2000 debut album 'They Don't Teach This Shit in School'.
This episode of 'The Late Late Show' was broadcast on 2 May 1997. The host is Gay Byrne.
