Our Ambassadors | Enable Ireland

Our Ambassadors

Cavan rock group The Strypes are Enable Ireland Ambassadors and are committed to raising awareness and taking action on disability.


The young Cavan band achieved overnight success in the summer of 2012 when their first video 'Don't Judge a Book by the Cover' gained worldwide attention. Within months the four-piece beat group were endorsed by giants such as Paul Weller and Jeff Beck and signed to Elton John's Management company, Rocket Man Management.

The Strypes are Ross Farrelly on Lead Vocals, Josh McClorey on Lead Guitar, Pete O'Hanlon on Bass Guitar and Evan Walsh on Drums. Their first EP - Young, Gifted and Blue – was released to critical and public acclaim in summer 2012.

Acording to Josh, they support Enable Ireland because "We know the great work they do here in our home town of Cavan and around the country. We want to help out and encourage our fans to take Action on Disability and support their work."

In December 2013 the band played a sell out homecoming tour in Cavan and donated the profits from their final show to Enable Ireland.
