About Robert

Robert has made Ireland his home for over 20 years. He served his apprenticeship in Country Music since he first arrived here, and is now a top Country Artist in Ireland and the UK. He has released 12 solo studio albums and 2 full length DVD’s to date, and is constantly touring Ireland and the UK with his band “The Country Kings”. Robert was voted “Ireland’s Favourite Country Music Singer” in a poll conducted by RSVP Magazine.

Robert was born in Louisiana, the Bayou State and raised on the shores of Lake Bistineau near Shreveport. Robert’s early musical influences came from his parents – both performed in a Church Gospel group. At the age of 17, Robert moved to Connecticut where he worked with his father in the painting & decorating business. He then joined the US army where he served for a number of years. After his military service he moved to Ireland with dreams of a career in country music.

“Kick Ass Country” was Robert’s first major hit, but it was “Say You Love Me” that made him a household name in Ireland. Other hits include “Gone, Gone, Gone”, “She’s My Baby”, “”, “Mama Courtney” and “Two Rooms And A Kitchen”.

Robert has recorded many songs in his career, but two highlights where in 2010 when he released the hit single “Mama Courtney” (an original written by Henry McMahon), and also “Murder On Music Row” (a cover duet with top American Country Artist, Collin Raye). Both singles reached the Number 1 position on the European Country Music Chart during 2010 and remained in the chart for twenty weeks.

Bride Clyne Documentary

We are delighted to have Proinsias O Rahilly attending our festival and

will present a documentary about Bridie Clyne in the Community Centre.

Proinsias Ó Rathaille mother, Bridie Clyne, was involved in republican activities from about the 1916-1926 and was on the republican side of the Civil War. She was with the republican garrison in the Four Courts when it was shelled by the Free State in June 1922.

In 1923 while in Kilmainham  under the alias Annie Hardwicke, she went on hunger strike along with her two friends.

She also married Niall O’Rahilly in 1940, son of The O’Rahilly.

This will be a double celebration with the second part being a plaque unveiling on Sunday.
