Meet The Acts

Cyril O’Donoghue & Blackie O’Connell

Cyril and Blackie create seamless, exciting music which enthrals audiences. Blackie is one of the most exciting uilleann pipers in traditional music. He was taught the uilleann pipes from a young age by the great Limerick piper Mickey Dunne, and has developed an exuberant and fast-flowing style. Cyril O’Donoghue comes from a musical family with strong ties to the East Clare tradition via his father Paddy, a founding member of the Tulla Ceili band. He has recorded with numerous artists and toured worldwide. Together, they welcome pipers to the famous Piping Heaven/Piping Hell event.
