    Event Description

    From Dumha Thuama in the Erris Gaeltacht in County Mayo, Fiachna and Séamus Ó Mongáin are musical siblings with a distinctive style influenced by the music of local Erris musicians .Both musicians have achieved numerous successes in the button accordion and concertina competitions in Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann. They have featured on many recordings for both RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta and RTE Radio One as well as programmes on TG4. Most recently they have featured on, “Amhráin Iorrais,” a project which their parents Seamus and Síle Uí Mhongáin undertook to unearth sean-nós songs and airs of the Erris Gaeltacht which had been collected in Chicago in the early part of the last century. Here's a clip of the lads in action! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpeJSNfDKNM ***THIS IS A FREE CONCERT - IF YOU ARE NOT A UCD STUDENT PLEASE GET IN TOUCH REGARDING TICKETS FOR ENTRY TO THE LIBRARY***
