RTÉ Archives: Andy Irvine Chats to Shay Healy on Nighthawks 1990

Watch Now!

Andy Irvine talks about travelling with his music and falling in love with Eastern Europe.

Andy Irvine has played in many bands including Sweeneys Men, Planxty, and Patrick Street, but also finds time to play solo.

He performs the traditional Scottish song Allan McLean.

This episode of Nighthawks was broadcast on 23 October 1990.
