Danny, previously the proprietor of O’Flaherty’s Irish Channel in New Orleans, has literally taken his Connemara Irish culture around the world with his songs & stories. Many Houstonians will remember Danny & his brother playing together at the Celtic Folk. They performed here in several local pubs and Irish festivals for the Hibernians. Since Katrina closed the Irish Channel, Danny has been traveling the country performing to sold-out audiences. While doing that, he has been working towards fulfilling the dream of establishing a “Celtic Nation’s Center” on the Gulf Coast. Part of that center involves the formation of curragh clubs and the staging of regattas between & within clubs. Danny will tell us more about that.
