The Riptide Movement will wash ashore in in East Cork next week for a very special performance.

It’ll all work out in Ballycotton

Dublin 4 piece The Riptide Movement will be making waves in East Cork next week when they play Sea Church in Ballycotton.

The Choice-nominated group are renowned for their live and energetic shows and have built a strong international reputation since forming in Lucan in 2006.

On their travels, the lads have enlightened Electric Picnic, gobsmacked Glastonbury (twice), and even found themselves playing at a rock concert in Delhi, representing Ireland at the Rendezvous Festival.

After once attending a Riptide Movement concert, legendary American songwriter Bob Dylan handed one of their CDs to the Rolling Stones which led to them supporting the Stones the following year in Hyde Park.

With a number 1 gold-selling album ‘Getting Through’ in 2014, the band has also produced environmentally themed music videos and documentaries, including their 2018 environmentally conscious web series which highlighted the effects of plastic pollution on the environment.

The Sea Church audience can look forward to hits including ‘All Works Out’, ‘Elephant in the Room’, ‘You and I’, and ‘Changeling’.

In the build-up to next week’s show, Sea Church general manager John Kidney said he has no doubt that the lads will put on a great show.

“It’s fantastic to have one of Ireland’s best performing bands here to play with us at Sea Church. Riptide Movement gigs are always incredible. We look forward to welcoming them to Ballycotton,” he said.

A limited number of tickets are available on the Sea Church website at for €35. Doors will open for the standing gig on Friday 26 August at 8pm for the 8.30pm show.
