Culture and Bray Wanderers are two things that, surprisingly, go hand-in-hand.
After all, the Carlisle Grounds was the place which masqueraded as Croke Park for the Bloody Sunday scene in Michael Collins.
Now, Dermot Kennedy has gone down to Wicklow to showcase 'the Garden of Ireland' in the video for his single 'Outnumbered'. The single, an emotional detail of loneliness, is mirrored by the landscapes on show in the video. Kennedy standing alone on the pitch of a floodlit Carlisle Grounds portrays this bone-shaking emotion even more so.
Kennedy himself was a talented footballer before making music his full-time profession. The singer lined out for Crumlin United in the Leinster Senior League, and furthermore, became a valuable member of the side which won four Major Saturday titles in a row.

For the 'Outnumbered' video, Kennedy joined the likes of Colm Tresson, Jason Byrne and Gary McCabe in making the Carlisle Grounds his own. Unfortunately, Rocky the Seagull does not make a cameo appearance in the video.
