Cuckoo’s Nest Live in association with St Anne’s GAA
After the appearance on last year’s Late Late Toy Show, Cuckoo’s Nest are a traditional group consisting of Maureen Codd (Cuckoo), Maureen Codd Junior and Cuckoo’s 14 grandchildren – Rachel, Eve, Florence, Anna, Gracie, Billy, John, Cormac, Maria, Daniel, Claire, Reagan, Evelyn and Peter. They hail from Wexford and Dublin and play a wide variety of instruments. The grandchildren range from ages 8 years to 17 years old.
Many of them are acclaimed traditional and classical musicians having won numerous All-Ireland titles at both Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann and the classical Feis Ceoil competitions.
They were introduced to Music from a very young age and were greatly inspired by their talented grandparents, Cuckoo and Papa! They enjoy playing for different events around the country including the “To Be Irish” concert, which took place in the EPIC Museum last Christmas and was streamed worldwide to celebrate the Irish diaspora. Cuckoo’s Nest are last year’s winners of “Réalta agus Gaolta”, a talent competition which was broadcast on TG4. They describe their most recent appearance on the Late Late Show as being a wonderful experience and a memory they will always cherish.
They are both excited and proud to support St Anne’s GAA club on the 19th of August in the National Opera House for this special event.
