delush feat. Tolü Makay Appear Live from Athlone Castle for ‘Ireland in Music’

Ireland in Music is a new film which captures some of the country’s top musicians performing at Ireland’s most spectacular locations. The show sees the country become a stage, as Denise Chaila and Sharon Shannon perform along The Cliffs of Moher, Clannad perform in Poison Glen, Gweedore; Lisa Hannigan in the bandstand at Saint Stephen’s Green, The Stunning outside Trim Castle, and delush and Tolü Makay perform at Athlone Castle. The show broadcast recently on RTÉ One and is now available to view on the RTÉ player (

The show featured a mind-blowing performance of ‘The Greatest Gift’, written and produced by delush (Enda Gallery), and performed by Enda alongside the incredible Afro-Irish soul-singer Tolü Makay. 

Speaking about the performance, Enda said, “It was a lovely experience to get back singing live with Tolü and perform our song with a bodhrán and harp on it. I love mixing up genres and instrumentation like that. It was also so nice that Westmeath County Council gave us the run of Athlone Castle for the day so we could enjoy a King and Queen’s residence – brought out the revolutionary in me and the Queen in Tolü!

The whole TradFest team are so good to work with and I understand that minister Catherine Martin was instrumental in enabling such a top programme in locations all around Ireland. We are all missing live music and looking forward to being together again. But this is a wonderful concept to showcase both the artistic and scenic beauty of our country and we can all be proud that it was put together. I’m truly honoured to be a part of it.”

Speaking about the song, Tolü said, “The greatest gift is a song that just makes one feel elated. And to see throughout the year after its release, the joy, love and comfort people have expressed it brings them, means the world.

I’m very happy to know others connect with it as much as I do. We all need a reminder of what comforting love can feel like and sometimes that’s all we need. It’s the greatest gift.

The Greatest Gift live performance at Athlone Castle for Ireland in Music (skip to 14.40mins)
