This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… Songs with videos Featuring League of Ireland Grounds November 16, 2019

I recently heard an ad for Dermot Kennedy ,looked up who Dermot Kennedy was, watched one of his videos and noticed that it was partially shot in The Carlisle Grounds in Bray …. which got me wondering what other videos featured League of Ireland Grounds?
The classic of the very limited LOI Ground in music video genre is “Jacks Heros” by The Pogues and The Dubliners which gloriously features them playing football in Tolka Park. I may be wrong but the rest of it could have been shot in the bar in Tolka.
Waterford rapper Pat Lagoons video was shot in part in The RSC where Waterford United play.
Urban/Hip hop artist Bobby Basils video features himself standing in the middle of Richmond Park where St Pats Play.
A music related LOI post wouldn’t be the same without The Hooplechauns and one of their many hits “We Are The Shamrock Rovers” which features both Milltown and Tallaght.
I’m surprised that there aren’t many more as there would have been plenty of LOI supporting bands. Although they don Derry City gear in some videos I couldn’t find any Undertones video featuring The Brandywell. No Westlife with The Showgrounds in Sligo.
Dalymount was a place where I thought there’d be something, bar Johnny Logan singing “Hold Me Now” in front of the Jodi before a match, I couldn’t find any music videos filmed there either.
Are there more videos that I missed?
