Spending their teenage years on stage in Leos Tavern proved to be a solid foundation for nurturing musical talent and in retrospect it’s no surprise that Moya, Ciaran and Pól Brennan followed in their fathers entertainment footsteps.

Although individually they took stage at Leos from an early age under the encouraging eye of Leo himself, the ‘band’ did not form until joined by their two uncles, twins Noel & Padraig Duggan. Clannad was born.

From entertaining the Meenaleck locals to winning the Letterkenny Talent Contest in 1970, Clannad released their first album in 1973 and went onto international success with hits such as Harrys Game and In a Lifetime.
