“If The Saw Doctors could bottle the sort of fun and bonhomie 
that can make an entire concert hall feel better, they would   
have the medicine show to end them all”.  The Times 

After a break of five years, The Saw Doctors will play their first ‘comeback’ Irish show
at Kilconly Community Centre, Kilconly, Tuam, Co. Galway, on Thursday 30th June.


The Saw Doctors line up includes song writers, Davy Carton on vocals and Leo Moran 
on guitar, with former Waterboy Anthony Thistlethwaite on saxophone, Rickie O’Neill
on drums, Will Merrigan on bass and Headford native Kieran Duddy on keyboards.
"It’s a Blues Brothers’ moment in The Saw Doctors’ camp” says guitarist Leo Moran. 

"To quote the John Belushi’s character Jake  “We’re putting the band back together”.
Last summer The Saw Doctors scored a surprise chart success when the vinyl release 
of the band’s debut album “If This Is Rock And Roll, I Want My Old Job Back’ landed 
at No. 3 in the Irish Album charts. The Saw Doctors album, featuring ’N17’, was first 
released in 1991, going straight to No.1 in the Irish Charts in May & August that year.
Starting out playing in Galway pubs, The Saw Doctors were asked to tour with Mike 
Scott of The Waterboys, spending six weeks as support on the 'Fisherman’s Blues’ 

tour of the UK in 1989. The Saw Doctors went from strength to strength when their  
single ‘I Useta Lover’ spent nine weeks at Number One in the charts and ended up 
becoming Ireland’s best-selling single of all time, outselling U2, Van Morrison and 

Sinéad O’Connor. 

Over the years, The Saw Doctors have built up a reputation as an unmissable live 
band with sold out tours and many festival appearances, including Glastonbury and 

the London Fleadh.
Famed for their unrelenting energy, a Saw Doctors live show is still performed with 
as much passion and fervour as their legendary small-town gigs 30 years ago in 

Galway and Mayo.
