It has been a long and magical journey for these Irish lads, and the magic continues. Due to YouTube, their Drunken Sailor song reached a new young audience, with over 10,000,000 hits. In 2012, Rovers songwriter/producer George Millar responded by heading back to the studio and recording a new CD full of songs of the sea, including a tribute to The Titanic for its 100th anniversary. The release made headlines in both America and Ireland, and was the soundtrack for a Canadian documentary about the Harland and Wolff shipyards of Belfast where the mighty ship was built.
