    I know, this post is over a year old - but yes, many of the originals were replaced. Ciaran Burke died in 1988, Luke Kelly in 1984, Ronnie Drew in 2008 (left the group 1995) and the last original, Barney McKenna died in 2012. So the recent line-up was with two singers who joined later.

    They retired their name in 2012, but you're right, Sweaty, three of the last members (Sean Cannon, Eamonn Campbell, Patsy Watchorn) and Gerry O'Connor continue performing as the Dublin Legends. They have nearly the same reportoire, a bit different playing, but they are great ;)

    Back to the dubs ;)
