For a taste of what to expect, Watch a live session the band filmed with Padraig Conaty in the Townhall last year. Available online now. Read the Hotpress review of their previous release. “Introducing” is the debut album from Cavan based band C O NEILL & CO. and its a wonderfully ragged and whiskey-soaked release that's full of dark observations and bruised and battered ballads. Ciarán O Neill`s broad accent really helps add some character to songs such as “I Fall In” & ” Half Man Half Tractor” and while a few of the country tinged numbers may take a while to embed themselves into your brain, once they do you`ll be humming them for weeks. Album highlight is the epic and anthemic “Look Da No Hands” which features a guest appearance from Whipping Boy`s Fearghal Mc Kee, and his typically impassioned spoken-word performance ends proceedings on a massive high – Edwin Mc Fee / Hotpress
