Folk and more from Donegal’s Onóir Folk and more from Donegal’s Onóir

Contemporary folk group, Onóir, who hail from Donegal, will be in concert in Galway’s Town Hall Theatre on Friday, January 19, at 8pm,  when the four-strong, male group will perform a range of favourite ballads and songs.

Onóir formed in 2020, when Donegal musicians Tom McHugh, Declan Gaughan, Deane Connaghan and Diarmaid McGee joined forces to perform a contemporary version of the ballad, The Auld Triangle. This song was first made famous by Brendan Behan in the 1950s when he included it in his play, The Quare Fellow.

The video that Onóir made in 2020 went on to be seen by over three million people worldwide and these talented musicians are now entertaining live audiences at home and abroad with their musical arrangements and distinctive harmonies.

In addition to performing popular Irish ballads and folk songs, they also delve into Americana, country and soul music. And they also promise plenty of fun and banter at their gigs.

Tickets for their January concert at the Town Hall are  €27.50, available at, 091-569777 or at the box office.

The quartet will also play the Station House Theatre in Clifden on December 1, with tickets on or from the venue, also at €27.50.
