Darragh O'Dea

Tuam, County Galway

Darragh O'Dea is an Irish songwriter known for his wistful storytelling and observations on everyday life. Using imagery of the past to tell present day tales he creates nostalgic nuggets of nonsense. Hailing from Tuam, Darragh's songs capture the moods and elements of his surroundings and are delivered with an alluring honesty.

Darragh has taken the stage of Lost Lane (Dublin), The Harrison (London), Claremorris Folk Festival and has performed with John Spillane and The Whileaways.

“Deliciously uncool in a heart on sleeve way” - Donal Scannell (Born Optimistic)

"Great imagery and poetry" - Ruth Smith (Simply Folk, RTE Radio 1)

"Darragh O’Dea has emerged as a solo artist gaining a reputation as a songwriter of deep expression.
'The Mary Robinson EP' is a deeply reflective and thoughtful offering. It is a wonderful journey that asks the questions, and yet has not the arrogance to offer a set of prescribed answers but allows for reflection and thought, set against beautiful melodies that are performed and delivered uniquely" - Seamus Ruttledge (Poet & Songwriter)
