Dermot Kennedy shares snap with Roy Keane as Ireland legend goes to Manchester gig

By Darragh Culhane

Dermot Kennedy has shared a snap with Roy Keane and the Irish singer has admitted he is lost for words.

Kennedy is currently touring the UK and was playing a gig in Manchester on Monday and shared a snap with his boyhood idol.

Sharing a snap of the two, Kennedy said that he could not put into words what it was like to meet Keane.

He said: "Can’t explain what it means. Will not even attempt to explain.@officialkeane16 came to my gig last night. Very very grateful indeed for a surreal moment"

Kennedy is back touring with indoor gigs back underway in the UK.

And it wasn't the first time that he paid tribute to Keane, with the Dubliner also taking to Instagram to praise his idol back in February.

He said in an Instagram post then: "@officialkeane16 has inspired me more than anyone, since I was a kid. I may move in a different field, but I took so much from him in terms of attitude and how to approach the things you’re most passionate about.

"You get out what you put in, and the results will always reflect your effort. I can only hope to inspire someone in the same way"
