This year 2010, Diarmuid O'Leary & The Bards are celebrating 30 years since their classic no.1 hit "Lanigan's Ball" and to mark the occasion "Ireland's Own" magazine did an extensive interview on Diarmuid's life and times and featured him on the front cover on 16th July.

This inspired Diarmuid to come up with the groups' latest comedy release "The Cover of Ireland's Own" - a parody on the Shel Silverstein song "The Cover of the Rolling Stone".
