Dublin band Wild Youth have told RTÉ Entertainment that it "hasn't sunk in yet" that they are supporting Westlife at Croke Park this weekend.

The quartet, who have just released new single Long Time No See, are the opening act on Friday and Saturday night, and said they want to savour every second on Jones Road.

"It's Croke Park!" said singer-guitarist David Whelan. "The amount of gigs that we've seen in there is insane - it's our big stadium.

"We only live five minutes away so when we're going into town we pass it every day. And, no fail, when I pass it I'm always looking up at it. It's one of those things."

"There's something magic about the fact that no matter what it's our national stadium: it's always going to be there," explained keyboard player and singer Conor O'Donohoe.

"Hopefully in a few years' time when we have kids or whatever - and if it all finished tomorrow - we could turn around and still tell our kids that we played our national stadium.

"Some huge Irish bands who might still play there haven't yet. It's a real honour. We're very grateful to Westlife for giving us this opportunity."

Wild Youth's big weekend in the city will see them zig-zagging between Croke Park and Marlay Park as they're also on the bill for Longitude on Saturday night, saying they'd "do three gigs in a day if we had to".

"We never thought about it, but we have to get a Garda escort to get us to Longitude," laughed Whelan. "After the gig they won't care about us! We'll be in the van and they'll be like, 'Can't wait to not see them again!'"

After taking the day off on Sunday, Wild Youth have said they'll be back in the thick of it again on Monday.

"We've a big announcement coming next week..." teased O'Donohoe.
