“I was recipient of the TG4 Young Traditional Musician of the Year award in 1998. I had just released an album with a group of musicians called Síona from Sligo and Leitrim. Receiving the award was a wonderful surprise to me. It was a great privilege and to receive this national award was a once in a lifetime thing for me.” June Nic Cormaic
