"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.
