Description

Named after the ballad of the 1916 rebellion, The Merry Ploughboys are a traditional folk group from Dublin, Ireland, who have been “singing it like they mean it” for 30 years , with gutsy and engaging vocals backed by arrangements of fiddle, mandolin and guitar and often joined by uilleann pipes, whistle or tenor banjo.

The repertoire spans humorous old Dublin music hall and street-songs, classic ballads from 19th and 20th century Irish history, timeless songs of emigration and romance, and peppered with traditional Irish dance tunes and their own original material.

The five original members of the band (Gareth Campbell – mandolin, Donal Cawley – guitar, Dermot Daly – fiddle and brothers Liam Heneghan - guitar, accordion and Eoghan Heneghan - bass guitar) are ably assisted throughout the year by other musicians as they perform a hectic schedule of over 300 shows each year in their home venue – their own pub and restaurant in the Dublin mountains, “The Merry Ploughboy Pub” which has a fully seated concert venue
