Biography

This family band, from Gweedore in Co. Donegal, Eire enjoyed transatlantic commercial success by skilfully crossing the bridge between folk and rock.

Ciaran Braonáin, Eire; guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards), and their twin uncles Pádraig Duggan (b. Pádraig Ó Dúgáin, February 1949, Eire; guitar, vocals, mandolin) and Noel Duggan (b. Noel Ó Dúgáin, February 1949, Eire; guitar, vocals).
