The Heneghan sisters

The Heneghan sisters Kate, Sal and Maggie are from Castlebar, Co. Mayo. Their love for music was evident from an early age in both genres of Irish traditional music and classical music.

Kate has a BA in Irish traditional music from the University of Limerick; with Sal following in her footsteps.

They hold several all-Ireland titles at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann on both harp and fiddle. They have many high-achiever awards in harp and piano RIAM classical exams. They perform and tour regularly together and have performed all across the world in Europe, Canada, America and Asia.

The Heneghan sisters tutor regularly and co-manage the ‘Westport Scoil Cheoil’. They are thrilled to be taking part in the Achill Harp Festival for the first time this year.
