“Ba mhaith liom buíochas a ghabháil ar gach duine a tháinig chuig an fógairt Gradam Ceoil agus a thug tacaíocht dom. Thank you to everyone for the overwhelming support I have received since the TG4 Gradam Ceoil awards were announced.

I feel truly honoured to be given this recognition and to be sharing this wonderful adventure with this year’s other Gradam recipients.

The harp, of course, is the real star of the show.
P.S. I didn’t write the headline for the Times!”
