Róisín Ní Mhorain


I have loved playing the fiddle for as long as I can remember. I am studying Music and Irish in University College Dublin with the intentions of becoming a teacher in these subjects. I have been involved in the organisation and supervision of music sessions in Fingallians GAA club which were designed to promote young people's interest in traditional Irish music and I hope to add in the "cúpla focal" to their learning experience in Comhaltas.
