‘Just about the best Tin Whistle player this century’ is how the Irish Times referred to Mary in a recent interview. Born into a very musical family, she began playing at an early age, winning many awards in Oireachtas and Fleadh Ceoil competitions, including the All-Ireland Championships at Junior and Senior level. Her first solo album ‘Feadóga Stáin’ brought out in 1979, is regarded as a classic in latter-day traditional music. Her second solo one, released in 1992 is similarly feted. She received an Honarary Diploma in Music teaching from C.C.E. in 1980 and subsequently tutored on the C.C.E. Music Teaching Diploma Course. She is a founding member of the group Dordan playing a distinctive mix of Traditional and European Baroque music, achieving wide acclaim and receiving the ‘National Entertainment Award’ for Traditional Music. Together they have released 4 collections. In 2000, Mary was awarded the prestigious TG4 Traditional Musician of the Year Award. Her appearance is obligatory for all fans of the whistle.
