Former Oasis star Liam Gallagher swapped the rock-and-roll lifestyle for a quiet few days away in Mayo over the weekend.

The British rocker (42) went back to his roots as he visited small rural town Charlestown in the West of Ireland where his mother Peggy hailed from.

No stranger to the area, Liam popped into JJ Finan's pub for a sing song with locals before posing for pictures to promote Charlestown Sarsfields GAA club's website.

The club's chairperson Kevin James Durkin told the Herald the Roll With It singer couldn't have been happier to help the locals out.

"Liam and his brothers are very well known around here and they're always very approachable," he said. "They spent a lot of time around Charlestown as children, so there's still childhood friends here."

Speaking earlier this month, Liam's former bandmate and brother Noel spoke about his fond memories of spending summers in Mayo.

"It's as rural as you can imagine," the singer said.

"Some uncle would always drive us there from Manchester in a car. Our summers seemed endless there, just brilliant. We loved it."
