  1. Hi Declan, very much looking forward to the album. I was wondering if I bought the vinyl version would it come with a digital download too?

  2. Hi Declan

    I came to The Rabbit Hole with Chris a few months ago and she’s bought me your first album for my birthday.
    I have a request……as I was singing along to ‘Sarah’ along the narrow lanes of Berkshire the other evening…I thought…I would love to sing it with you arrrrh there, I’ve said it…..I have a ticket for the Islington next week and I promise that…I do not want to get into showbiz ….I love it that you sing from such a big heart and it would make my day…and….it is my birthday next week!!

    I’ll understand, if you consider this a crackpot request… I was practising Galileo and that lovely Sea Song and of the three, I thought I’d love to sing ‘Sarah’. We have a Samoyed dog called Kai, he has a smiley mouth and a curly tail and you can spin his fur and knit with it …ha haaaaaa The breed hail from a cold Russian place, Siberia and they are used to herding raindeer and living with tribespeople.

    Love and best wishes


    I have a ticket for The

  3. I heard you on abc radio yesterday – they played your entire album and you are amazing!! A great find. I will be looking out for any live shows in syd :)

  4. We saw you on Friday night at the Stendhal festival near limavady and it was magical,I think you weren’t sure what to expect in a muddy field and in a tent but you had everyone singin the chorus to quite a few songs,your music has an appeal to everyone no matter what their background so thank you so much for a great evening.

  5. Hi Declan,
    I heard you the first time in Rostrevor, when I visited the Fiddlersgreen Festival. Great concert, great new experience for me to hear a new way of composing and playing Irish Folk. Will the “New Triangel” also play in Germany? Where can I get Infos about concerts of my “Old Hero” John Sheahan, Damien Dempsey and you?

    Looking forward to your new cd and hopefully your next concert, alone or with your comrades.

  6. Really looking forward to the new album Declan, the recent show in the White Horse, Ballincollig has served to whet the appetite for the new songs, and it was great to chat with you afterwards. Looking forward to your contributions to the upcoming Centenary commemorations as well. And if you need a backing vocalist at some stage who has a baritone voice you can give me a call! Good luck with the album release.

      If you’re based in Ireland, HMV and Golden Discs will still be carrying some stock. If outside Ireland, is your best bet. Some of their third party sellers are offering new copies for sale.
