For Those I Love returns to Tolka Park in video for ‘To Have You’

“The trip out to the football can feel like a pilgrimage. Every mix of bliss and pain and glory is felt in the terraces each week, but it’s been lost for us all since the world changed overnight”.

Throughout much of David Balfe’s debut album, the sounds of the crowd in Tolka Park grounded his heartfelt lyrics. It’s as much a spiritual home for the Irish artist as it is a lynchpin for the local community and in his latest video for ‘To Have You’, the poet returns to its hallowed grounds following a barren 16 months.

Speaking on Instagram, he said, “The trip out to the football can feel like a pilgrimage. Every mix of bliss and pain and glory is felt in the terraces each week, but it’s been lost for us all since the world changed overnight.”

“Being back in the stands as To Have You was shot felt like a shower of relief and beauty, and I can’t thank Niall enough for his vision and understanding of what it all means. The track is very much about survival, reflecting on a world me and mine grew up through and confronting those who question it. I am blessed to be able to hear this in a new light now as it’s mixed with Niall’s art.”
