"Great imagery and poetry" - Ruth Smith (Simply Folk, RTE Radio 1)
"Darragh O’Dea has emerged as a solo artist gaining a reputation as a songwriter of deep expression. His latest release, 'The Mary Robinson EP' (October 2018) is a deeply reflective and thoughtful offering. It is a wonderful journey that asks the questions, and yet has not the arrogance to offer a set of prescribed answers but allows for reflection and thought, set against beautiful melodies that are performed and delivered uniquely and with a raw confidence" - Seamus Ruttledge, Poet
Darragh has taken the stage of Lost Lane (Dublin), The Harrison (London), Claremorris Folk Festival and has performed with John Spillane and The Whileaways.
His debut album will be released in Summer 2020.
