  1. Hi Lads, Great Site. My name is Martin A. Egan and I am a Multi Platinum Selling Irish Songwriter and Performer, you can check out my Current Album and my Artwork at the Link above. My Album “The Tune” took 17 years to put out. It features some of the Luminaries of Irish Folk and Contemporary Music such as Donal Lunny who not only played Bodhran and Keyboards on it but also co-produced it with me. Other Musicians include the late Jimmy Faulkner (Christy Moore Band) Keith Donald (Moving Hearts) Davy Byrne, Joe Wearen, Des O’Byrne (The Golden Horde) Al Cowan who played Drums and also had a hand in the Production.
