A public interview with Eileen O’Brien

Eileen O’Brien’s musical heritage is rooted in the family music traditions of her Tipperary father (accordion player and composer Paddy O’ Brien) and her Westmeath mother (singer Eileen Seery). But her connection to Clare music is a powerful one. With long standing musical friendships across Co. Clare, Eileen is warmly welcomed wherever good music is played in the county.

In this conversation with Paula Carroll she discusses the importance of music in her life.
