FINBAR FUREY AND Christy Dignam have received a great deal of praise, following their stunning duet of the song Green Fields of France on the Late Late Show last night.

The pair were on the show to celebrate Furey’s 70th birthday, and were joined by Ireland manager Martin O’Neill, musician Sharon Shannon and actor Patrick Bergin to celebrate Furey’s career.

Dignam described how Furey had helped him when he was suffering from cancer and had become wheelchair-bound.

Furey had picked him up by coming over to his house with a banjo and they played songs together.

It wasn’t long before a banjo was then produced on the show and they launched into the song Green Fields of France, with the audience giving them a rousing reception afterwards.

Praise for the performance was widespread afterwards on social media.
