Máire is the reigning champion of sean-nós singing; she won the Corn Uí Riada at the Oireachtas na Samhna in 2019. She performed for the Milwaukee Irish Fest at Home in 2020 and we’re delighted to feature her in person in 2022. She’s originally from An Screabán, Gaoth Dobhair in Donegal.
Máire’s distinctive singing voice and interpretation of songs have won her many awards, including Comórtas na mBan, the All-Ireland Fleadh, and the Pan Celtic traditional singing competition.
Máire’s CD Nuair A Théid Sé Fán Chroí displays her distinguished character as a singer – and the evident pleasure she gets from the singing.
TG4 features videos of Máire interpreting a selection of sean-nós songs: https://seannos.tg4.ie/baile/amhranaithe/maire-ni-choilm/
