Róisín O had just formed a new duo with her long-term band member and co-songwriter John Broe when they attended a gig in Vicar Street, Dublin, together. When asked at the venue by a DJ what the name of their new group was, the pair were at a loss. But thankfully inspiration was just around the corner.
“We were standing there and Peter Dinklage who plays Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones started walking towards us. We are huge Game of Thrones fans. This was before the last season ended, so he was working up in Belfast and had come down to the gig,” explains Róisín.
