Ellie and Louise Macnamara, better known to most as Irish pop sensation Heathers, were in Mullingar's Number 1 on Thursday night with support from Mullingar band The Academic and the blusey sounds of Paulie Martin. 

Heathers wowed the crowds with an acoustic set of all their songs including 'Forget Me Knots', 'Remember When' and a great cover of Katy Perry's hit single 'Roar'. 

Speaking during the gig both sisters explained that it was their first time in a long time getting to play just the two of them and that they had been 'looking forward to this gig for a long time'. See the video below for their performance of 'Remember When' made famous by the Fáilte Ireland advertising campaign.

Not to be forgotten about, Mullingar youngsters, The Academic provided a blend of indie and rock and performed some of their new songs 'Is This Thing On' and 'Bear Claws'.

Paulie Martin eased the crowd into the night with classic covers of Bill Withers and Tears for Fears as well as a number of songs penned by himself. 

This is one of many great gigs Number 1 has held over the past number of Thursday nights. For a list of what's going on in Number 1 over the Christmas check out their Facebook page.
