These six singing brothers Richie, Des, Sammy, Robbie, Johnny and Jerome, hail from Coolboy, Co.

They are currently making a big impression on the national and international music scene with appearances on a number of TV and Radio shows including their recent live performance of the title song at the Rose of Tralee International Festival before a TV audience of 1.2 million. The have also made appearances on RTE’S ‘Up For The Match 2011’ the Derek Mooney Show and the John Murray Show on Radio 1.
They have just concluded a number of very successful performances in the U.S. and the UK, and have further U.S tours planned for later this year.
In 2012 they had the honour of singing in Croke Park at the All-Ireland Hurling Final replay between Kilkenny and Galway. They have performed at the Symphony Hall, Birmingham and as guests of Daniel O’ Donnell at his concert during the Donegal Shore Festival.
Following the huge success of their debut album ‘The Promise’ which included their hit song ‘Where The Blarney Roses Grow’, they have just released their new single ‘No Matter How High’ taken from their second album ‘Irish Heart’ which will be released this November.
