The Beatles Irish Concerts chronicles the Fab Four's riotous, entertaining and historic visits to Ireland in 1963 and 1964, at the height of Beatlemania. Based on over 200 interviews, this book brings you backstage at the Adelphi in Dublin and the ABC Ritz in Belfast in 1963, and also features the Kings's Hall concerts in Belfast in 1964 - painting a never-before-told story of the days Ireland shook to its foundations when 'Beatlemania' came to town. Award-winning journalist Colm Keane has interviewed the fans, the autograph hunters, the support bands, the police, hotel and cinema staff, the promoters, the press, airport employees, medical personnel, along with Beatles' staff and George Harrison's Irish cousins. He spoke to the screaming girls who fainted and suffered convulsions while attending the shows. They describe how they cried hysterically, pulled their hair out, tore off clothes and complained that their heads were bursting apart. He graphically describes how riots erupted on the streets and how both cities were like war zones.

The author has also interviewed stars including The Searchers, Adam Faith, Brian Poole, Peter Jay of the Jaywalkers, the Kestrels, the Vernons Girls, the Brook Brothers, the Remo Four and many others.
