Na Mooneys will headline the Donegal Festival of Golf on 19th August in the gorgeous surrounds of Na Dúnaibh GAA pitch, Downings.
This festival is being hosted by Donegal County Council as part of the prestigious Irish Legends Golf Tournament and in association with the McGinley Foundation on the 19- 20 August.
Na Mooneys are an Irish folk music family from Gaoth Dobhair, Donegal, who formed in 2013. The band is made up of Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh and her siblings Anna and Gearóid along with Mairéad’s nephew, Ciarán Ó Maonaigh.
Mairéad is a household name among Irish music fans as a leading member of the band Altan and has been called Ireland’s ‘Queen of Trad’. The very mention of her name evokes everything that we love about traditional Irish music. It is not surprising that Na Mooneys have become known as one of the most talented musical families in Ireland.
