BREANNDÁN Ó BEAGLAÍOCH & LASAIRFHÍONA


Lasaírfhíona Ní ChonaolaMaoinithe ag Comhairle Ealaíon Thuaisceart Éireann, is é cuspóir Ródseó Pobal ná siamsaíocht ealaíne Ghaeilge den chéad scoth a chur i láthair agus íomhá na teanga a fheabhsú i gceantair éagsúla. I mbliana bhí Breanndán Ó Beaglaíoch, Lasairfhíona Ní Chonaola, Alan Burke agus Dónal O'Connor uilig páirteach.


Ó tháinig a céad cnuasach ceoil "An Raicín Aláinn" amach sa bhliain 2002, tá cáil bainte amach ag Lasairfhíona Ní Chonaola as ucht a gutha séimh galánta.


Agus tá an Ciarraíoch Breanndán Ó Beaglaíoch aitheanta ní hamháin mar cheoltóir traidisiúnta den scoth, ach le deich mbliana anuas mar láithreoir 'Geantraí,' clár ceoil tráidisiúnta TG4.

This year's line-up was particularly strong, with Breanndán Ó Beaglaíoch, Lasairfhíona Ní Chonaola, Alan Burke and Dónal O'Connor all featured on the bill. Just before their first Pobal concert at the City Hall in Belfast, Breanndán and Lasairfhíona called in to us on Blas to give us a few tunes.


Since the release of her first album "An Raicín Álainn" in 2002, Inis Oírr singer Lasaírfhíona Ní Chonaola has won hearts at home and abroad with her beautiful soft voice.


Kerryman Breanndán Ó Beaglaíoch is famous not only for his singing and box playing but also as presenter of "Geantraí," TG4's traditional music show.
