In September 2010, the lads returned to their roots, while filming in Northern Ireland for their DVD/television special, “Home in Ireland”. The DVD celebrates the beauty of their homeland with music, spectacular scenery, special guests and band interviews. George Millar says, “It’s basically The Irish Rovers ‘Coming Home’ because this is our home, for all of us. We want to show the world what the northwest Irish coast is like. I’ve traveled the world now for over 40 years and there’s nothing like it.

The DVD also includes  a lively pub session at The Wild Duck Inn, Portglenone and concert footage from The Waterfront Hall in Belfast.

The lads are joined by special musical guests Foster and AllenCathal McConnellThe Gerry O’Connor Band, Patrick Davey, Morris Crum, and the World Champion Doherty Irish Dancers.

Through band interviews, we also get a more intimate look at each of The Irish Rovers. Preview DVD
