“Three of Ireland’s finest musicians – Peadar Ó Ríada, Martin Hayes and Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh – come together to record 19 of Peadar’s original tunes in a new album of Irish traditional music “that achieves such an orchestral sound … (it) may echo for years to come” (Irish Times Review, May 5, 2010).

The album, entitled 3 Triúr sa Draighean,was recorded in the Ó Ríada family home in Cúil Aodha, Co. Cork, named after the ‘Blackthorn’ which grows in abundance around the house.

The film, by New York and Ireland based filmmaker Dónal Ó Céilleachair, follows the three musicians throughout the entire recording process on an intimate journey through the passageways of Irish traditional music, presenting “a rich tapestry of insights into the creative process”.”
