Aoife McLaughlin

Aoife is from Falcarragh in north-west Donegal.  She started playing the fiddle at an early age and her main teacher was Francie Mooney.

For many years Aoife attended the Donegal Fiddle Summer School in Glencolmcille, organised by Cairdeas na bhFidiléirí, where she met and learnt from some brilliant exponents of Donegal fiddle playing, including James Byrne. 

Aoife went to university in Galway, where she made some great musical friends, before moving to Dublin where she still lives. 
 
Aoife has taught and performed fiddle at home and abroad. She often plays in duet with uilleann piper Emmett Gill and with Dublin fiddle player Niamh McNeela, including performances on Raidió na Gaeltachta and RTÉ Radio 1.
