From the first to the fourth century, Ireland was protected from invasion by a band of warriors who were known as Na Fianna. These men were made up of members from many different tribes whose aim was to protect and preserve the Irish way of life, her culture, and her arts.
The band has evolved through the years, the line-up changed, and now comprises of brothers Ciarán and Hugh Finn, James O’Connor and Peter McMahon. These young men continue to transcend generational barriers with their unique interpretation of Ireland’s rich heritage through storytelling and song. They are professional, hard working, highly skilled musicians who stay true to themselves and their heritage. Loyalty to tradition and each other is their forte. This ethos, combined with their exceptional capacity to entertain, has been the catalyst for the continued rise of Na Fianna.
