From an Irish pub to an Academy Award winning movie: The Mahones have come a long way in 28 years. Heralded as pioneers of the Irish punk scene, and internationally recognized as one of the best and hardest working punk outfits around, The Mahones formed on St. Patrick's Day in 1990, and have been working on their own brand of Irish punk ever since. With a working class ethic and a love of classic punk, Dublin-born Finny McConnell formed the band to combine his love of punk rock with his Irish culture.
The Mahones have released an incredible ten studio albums, three compilation albums, two live albums and two EPs. The band has toured through over 35 countries internationally, headlined festivals all over the world, and has been honoured to share a stage with nearly all of their favourite bands. The band grew from Irish pubs and punk squats, to halls, theatres and arenas, touring relentlessly since their start, and is famous for an incredible high-energy live show.
