Irish Tour '74 is a blues oriented rock double-album by Rory Gallagher. The album was compiled from live recordings made at concerts on an Irish Tour in January 1974 at Belfast Ulster Hall, Dublin Carlton Cinema and Cork City Hall. 'Back On My Stompin´ Ground (After Hours)' was taken from a jam session during the Tour on the Lane Mobile Unit. Irish Tour has sold in excess of two million copies world-wide. An article in a Belfast daily newspaper stated: "Rory Gallagher never forgot Northern Ireland, he returned throughout the '70's when few other artists of his calibre dared not come near the place."
Gallagher's 1974 tour of Ireland coincided with one of the most tumultous times in Belfast. Violence was erupting throughout the city even at rock concerts. As a result, many rock acts refused to play in the city. Nevertheless, Gallagher included a stop in Belfast on the tour and was rewarded with one of his best shows.
