Enda has performed in folk clubs, arts centres, libraries and at festivals in the Ireland, the Britain, Europe and the United States. He has a particular fondness for Dublin songs, but his repertoire is wide ranging and incorporates, among others, many Irish language songs and self-composed ballads.

To date Enda has released two albums: Dreams of Carrickfergus in 1990, which was inspired by the singing of the late Frank Harte, and Ceol sa Chistin (Music in the Kitchen) 2010, which John Brophy in the Irish Music Magazine described as being “essentially an album about emigration”.

He has just completed an MA in Irish Traditional Music Performance at University of Limerick.

Enda lives currently in a the Conamara gaeltacht (Irish speaking area) and tours his one man show of songs, tunes and stories."

(PiF: Enda lived in Faversham for a number of years, many of us will remember him well from those days - fond memories!)
