We've never seen a more talented brother and sister duo than Róisín O and Danny O'Reilly.

But, we suppose with a mum like Mary Black, they have great genes in them.

The solo artist and Corona's frontman joined together – in a barber shop of all places – to perform Fleetwood Mac's The Chain.

And they sound absolutely glorious together.

Have a listen and let us know what you think.



We all know that sometimes the best way to get your mind off a break-up, is to get to work, and it seems like that's what Danny O'Reilly is going to do.

Just as the news broke of his break-up with Holly Carpenter yesterday, The Coronas front man is set to play a gig in Galway today – absolutely free.


But if you're there at the moment, you better be quick because he's set to take to the stage at 2pm outside Enable Ireland on High Street (opposite Sonny Molloy's bar).

The Front Door announced the news earlier today. “If you are in town be sure to call in or tag any friends that are fans!”

If only we could get a helicopter down…



Congratulations are in order for Danny O Reilly, he has just been named as a new host for TodayFM.

The Irish radio station just announced their new line-up for the weekend, which included The Corona's star and Hector O Heochagain.

The frontman is gearing up to host a two-month special, A Different Side on Sundays, which will start at 4pm.

And the topic of his show sounds pretty damn cool.

Danny wants to celebrate the role that music has on Ireland's biggest stars, which will include sports stars, musicians, actors and more.

We can't wait to give it a listen!

And in more deadly music news, Danny's sister, Róisín O has just announced that she will be the supporting act for The Coronas and The Academic at Cork's The Marquee.

The gigs will take place on June 24 and 25, and it's set to be a weekend full of craic with these bands performing.

Róisín O is also set to headline our gig in The Sugar Club on Wednesday July 6th.

Raising awareness of dating abuse and raising funds for Women's Aid is the name of the game on the night, and if you want to get involved, you can get your early bird tickets right here, right now. 


Coronas frontman Danny O'Reilly comes from family bursting with musical talent, and we were given just a taster of it today, thanks to RTÉ.

The singer, accompanied by his sister Róisin O and cousin Aoife Scott, recorded a beautiful version of the Irish folk song Grace at Kilmainham Gaol recently, as part of RTÉ's Centenary celebration.

RTÉ released a short clip of the recording today, and it's simply beautiful – though there's no sign of Danny and Róisín's ma, Mary Black.

You've no doubt heard Grace at the odd trad sesh or pub lock-in, but what you might not know is that it only dates back to 1985, and was written in honour of Grace Gifford, who married Joseph Plunkett in Kilmainham Gaol just hours before his execution for his part in the Easter Rising.

So it's a very fitting tribute indeed.

RTÉ will show the full version of the song on Monday night during an evening of music which also features  Imelda May, Jack L, Gavin James, The High Kings, Colm Wilkinson, Iarla Ó Lionáird, Sharon Shannon, Dónal Lunny, John Sheahan, Celine Byrne, and Seo Linn.

Centenary kicks off on RTÉ One on Easter Monday at 9.35pm, with a live broadcast from the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.


Danny O’Reilly has hit out at a political ad this week after they used his name. The front man was described as being "shafted" by the radio industry.

The Coronas member took to social media to name and shame the campaign and said he never was asked to be a part of it.

The campaign claims that Irish talent is not given enough airtime on radio stations.

However, the singer did write that "the current legislation affecting what constitutes as 'Irish music' needs to be reviewed."
