A Donegal family who paid their first visit to the All Ireland Fleadh last week have become an instant success after they captivated practically the whole town of Ennis.

The father and sons quartet of Tommy and sons Luca, Finn and Dempsey danced and sang their way along the streets on what many now refer to as the “Siege of Ennis”.

The Mountcharles town quartet captured hearts online with their performance going insanely online.

The Facebook live stream of their performance has now attracted 2.7 million views, 75,000 likes, and almost 16,000 comments.

Tommy told the Democrat, “It's phenomenal - since this happened we have had enquiries from Dubai, Tasmania, the US and the UK We have also been booked to play for two weeks to play in the famous Raglan Rd. Irish Pub in Disneyland in Florida next year.

The lads are no strangers to music lovers in Donegal with their own show in Jackson's Hotel as well as guest appearances at other venues including the prestigious Ballyshannon Folk Festival.

“It's going to take time to digest all this - meanwhile it's going to be back to school for the lads as we all contemplate the future. “
