We are so excited to be joined by Ceol for Páirc Festival 2023!

Ceol are a new, young band from all over Ireland with a passion for folk music. Their members are Cathal from Dublin, Matthew from Donegal, James from Wexford and Daryl from Kildare!

The band were discovered by Liam McKenna and Nathan Carter. They even collaborated with Nathan on Heave Away, which got over a million views on social media within just a week after its release. This then featured on their debut EP, Those Were The Days, which came out in November 2022.

Nathan spoke about how he discovered the band, saying: “The idea came to me when I was travelling around Ireland and seeing so many talented young musicians singing and playing in pubs every night of the week. I thought to myself, “There is an opening here for a great young band who play a mix of the old folk songs with a contemporary modern twist.”

Their inspirations include The Dubliners, The Chieftains, Christy Moore, Mumford and Sons, and have even amassed a huge TikTok presence, with over 5 million views in just 9 months, making them Ireland’s fastest growing debut music artist on the platform!

We can’t wait to welcome this fantastic new Irish talent to our stage this summer!
