Irish indie music fans rejoice as The National announce four Summer Irish dates

Great news for Irish indie music fans as The National have today announced that they'll be touring Ireland next year.

Tickets priced at €42.05 will go on sale tomorrow morning from Ticketmaster.ie, just in time for Christmas so you can forget about your Saturday morning lie-in. Here at JOE we're setting our alarms for 5.30am to make sure we wake up on time to book our tickets. Sure, they mightn't go on sale until 9am but we like to hit the snooze button. A lot.

Fans of the band will be able to catch them Live At The Marquee, Cork (14 July); Festival Big Top, Galway (16 July) and Iveagh Gardens, Dublin (18 & 19 July) so have those (already completely and utterly maxed-out) credit cards at the ready.

In the meantime, here's one of the band's brilliant tracks to whet your appetitite before tomorrow morning's mad rush...
