TWO Cork sisters have recorded a song about what they miss most during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Sophie and Laura O'Keeffe from Ballycotton, who combine as pop duo Kudos, have released an upbeat track called.
The duo's song has been released on their social media channels and features video footage of their local team, Russell Rovers, as well as video calls to family and friends they have been able to meet because of the lockdown imposed to curb the spread of Covid-19.
The track also refers to looking forward to the future when it will be possible to meet family without Zoom, moving beyond the movement restrictions which were in place when the song was released, and getting hair and beauty treatments.
The sisters said: "People have been really enjoying this track and have been telling us what they are looking forward to, when this is over. Almost everyone can relate to the sentiment and references in the song. As music lovers and performers, we long to attend gigs with our friends and start performing again ourselves."
The sisters say they hope their song reminds people "that we have brighter days to look forward to, when we will we are reunited with family, friends and everything we enjoy in life."
Two years ago, they launched their debut album, called Perfect, which reached number eight in the Irish music charts. This was followed earlier this year by Birthdays and Valentines, which climbed to number four in the album charts after being released in February.
Other successes include reaching the final of Realta agus Gaolta on TG4, and supporting Hudson Taylor, Mundy and Mickey Joe Harte. They were also special guests for Tom Baxter on his 2019 Irish tour.
They have also won the Wesley College national singing contest.
