Ian Tilson (Waterford), Jack McCarthy (Dublin), Niall Kenny (Kilkenny) & Ken Downie (Waterford), who make up the Artistic Differences, have been living in Australia for the past four years but are hoping to make a trip to Poland or the Ukraine for a couple of weeks next summer.

The band have been in contact with the Irish Cancer Society to discuss the possibility of the song being released as a charity single.
