I still remember hearing The Unthanks for the first time. I was in Ennis watching Other Voices on the TV.
I thought that the name ‘The Unthanks’ was unusual.
Later doing some web searching, I was further surprised that the surname of two of the singers was Unthank – Rachel and Becky.
If I had seen this plaque on St. John’s church in Limerick earlier, the sense of surprise would have been lost.
