Mooney family to launch new CD on Rónán Beo @3 on RnaG

The well-known musical Ó Maonaigh/Mooney family from Cois Cláidí in Gaoth Dobhair will officially launch their new album live on Rónán Beo @3 on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta on Thursday 6th October.

The Mooneys were born and reared in the Gaoth Dobhair Gaeltacht in Donegal, an area rich in music and culture.  The group is made up of sisters Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh (vocals and fiddle) and Anna Ní Mhaonaigh (vocals and whistle), their brother Gearóid Ó Maonaigh (guitar), and his son Ciarán Ó Maonaigh (fiddle).

This is the first album for the family as a musical group, and on Thursday Rónán will have them live in studio to play, and to talk about the new album which features songs and tunes, both new and old, and we’ll hear exclusive versions of those tunes on the show. 

Watch it all live online on the Rónán Beo @3 Facebook page.

Tune in to Rónán Beo @3 on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta on Thursday 6 October 3 pm.
