Nell Ní Chróinín hails from the Irish speaking Múscraí Gaeltacht of West Cork, an area with a strong heritage of song and music which Nell was exposed to from a very young age. She began singing at the age of 11 and has enjoyed much success in her singing career to date. She has several underage singing medals and titles including the Oireachas na Gaeilge and Fleadh Ceoil. Nell is also the youngest ever recipient of ‘TG4’s Gradam Ceoil Traditional Singer of the Year‘ award 2012 and the prestigious Corn Uí Riada award 2014.
