Celebrate the day of the year when everyone is a little Irish with Danú, one of Ireland’s most acclaimed traditional music ensembles.

For two decades, this band hailing from County Waterford has been entertaining audiences internationally with its breathtaking vocals in Irish and English and virtuoso performances on flute, tin whistle, button accordion and bouzouki. Irish Music Magazine rightly praises that Danú “stirs the blood and lifts the heart.”

Ciarán Ó Gealbháin, the original lead singer of Danú, will join the group in place of Nell Ní Chróinín. Dr. O’Gealbhain is a lecturer in the Department of Folklore and Ethnology, University College Cork, where his doctoral research focused on aspects of the Déise song tradition.
