Conor O'Brien Elvis Costello

Last Thursday, as part of President Higgins’ State visit to Britain, the Royal Albert Hall in London played host to Ceiliúradh, a celebration of Ireland’s long-standing cultural connections with Britain.

The event featured musical performances from Paul Brady, The Gloaming, Glen Hansard, Lisa Hannigan, Eimear Quinn, John Sheahan, Andy Irvine, Donal Lunny and Imelda May.

The event also featured a performance from Conor O’Brien of Villagers (pictured), who duetted with Elvis Costello on the song “Shipbuilding”.

A special house band also performed throughout the evening featuring some of Ireland’s finest musicians including Liam Bradley, John Carty, Anthony Drennan, Graham Henderson, Donal Lunny, Mike McGoldrick, Paul Moore, Caitlin NicGabhann, Mairtin O’Connor and Brendan Power.

The full version of the show is available now on the RTE player here http://www.rte.ie/player/ie/show/10272080/
