I compose liturgical music, traditional tunes, European style music and love exploring with different musical genres. I am director of Cór Cúil Aodha and have been since my fathers death in 1971. Lecturing, filmmaking, radio-broadcasting and bee- keeping are just a few of my other hobbies.
I’m involved in various projects such as Bonn Ór Séan Ó Riada, Iontaoibheas Fódhla, Féile na Laoch and Acadamh Fódhla. Living in An Draighean, Cúil Aodha, Co Chorcaighe with my wife and four children.
I present a radio program, Cuire Chun Ceoil, from 7-9 on Raidio na Gaeltachta every Friday night where I play the best of Irish traditional music both old and new. If any artist wishes to send me their album for my radio show they can contact
