Danny from The Coronas


How excited we all were (pupils and teachers alike) when an Muinteoir Chambers arranged for Danny O’Reilly of The    Coronas to come to perform for us in the school. The Coronas concert in the O2 before   Christmas sold out and here he was agreeing to come to sing for us!


Danny speaks Gaeilge (having studied Irish in UCD alongside an Múinteoir Ní Mhuirgheasa!) and he opened our concert with an Irish language version of The Coronas hit single ‘Heroes and Ghosts’. Danny was great with the pupils, answering all of their questions and he told them that he was more nervous singing for them than he was when he was performing for thousands in the O2!


Not only is he a wonderfully accomplished singer, songwriter & musician whose musical pedigree (Danny is the son of Mary Black) is obvious but he was also extremely gracious and humble.
