“Deliciously uncool in a heart on sleeve way” - Donal Scannell (Born Optimistic)
"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. 'The Mary Robinson EP' 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" - Seamus Ruttledge (Poet & Songwriter)
Darragh has taken the stage of Lost Lane (Dublin), The Harrison (London), Claremorris Folk Festival and has performed with John Spillane and The Whileaways.
