Abstract

This paper considers the way in which the Irish boy band of the 1990s mounted a challenge to dominant discourses in Ireland around gender and sexuality, despite the fact that the they consitute the most critically derided form of music and represent one of the most commercial,'manufactured' and inauthentic aspect of Celtic Tiger Ireland.
