It is with profound sadness that we have learned of the death of Richard Kelly. Richie played accordion with the band for a number of years.

May he Rest in Peace.


Richie Kelly - Recorded in 1974





The Gallowglass Ceili Band from Naas, County Kildare, Ireland was formed in 1950 by Pat McGarr.

They enjoyed huge national and international success playing in practically every town in Ireland, with several tours of England, Scotland & The USA which included performances in The Royal Albert Hall London and also in the world famous Carnegie Hall New York.
