Éamonn Ó Bróithe

Éamonn Ó Bróithe is a piper and singer from Dún Laoghaire, Co. Dublin, but has spent his adult life in the west of Ireland: in Connemara, Mayo and Galway city, where he now lives with his wife and two sons. He began learning the uilleann pipes from Leon Rowsome in Dublin in 1972 and subsequently developed a great interest in Gaelic poetry, song and history. Trips to the Ring gaeltacht in Co. Waterford, and visits to the area’s local singers, such as Pádraig and Nioclás Tóibín, greatly influenced him. Éamonn’s chief interests are the songs of the Déise (East Munster) and the songs of Munster’s literary tradition.
