The End was a rock-pop band from Dublin which was active at the end of the 1970s and start of the 1980s. The band is famed for featuring Tom Dunne [Later of Something Happens] on vocals. The band's line up was completed by Cormac Wright [Guitar], Brendan Lynott [Bass Guitar] and John Bonnie [Drums]. The group played regularly during its existence including high profile gigs with The Teardrop Explodes and the Carnsore Point Anti-Nuclear Festival in 1981.

The band recorded a number of demos during the early 1980s. One of these, 'Part Two' was released as a cassette EP in 1981. Towards the end, Finbarr O'Riordan replaced Brendan on bass guitar. Eoin Freeney and Paul Monahan (both ex-Chant! Chant! Chant!) also played with The End for a brief period after their previous project came to an end.

The band split in 1983 with Tom Dunne going on to join Something Happens. He later became a DJ of some repute, firstly with Today FM and later with Newstalk. John Bonnie later performed with the likes of Scared Stiff and Those Handsome Devils. Brendan would later go on to join The Trouble Pilgrims.
