Ceol na nGael
The current hosts of Ceol na nGael, Shannon Spillane and Megan Scully, exude enthusiasm about continuing the show's tradition of celebrating Irish music and culture.
Shannon has been immersed in Irish music and culture her entire life. Her grandparents are from Kerry and Cork, and she has been back to Ireland at least a dozen times. Shannon began Irish step-dancing when she was 5 years-old and has played Gaelic Football since she was 12. A Katonah, NY resident, she continues to play Gaelic football for two New York clubs and has twice traveled to Ireland to compete against Irish and other international teams.
Ceol na nGael has long been a part of Megan's life. Her grandparents relocated to the Bronx from Ireland and often listened to the program, which served as a comforting reminder of home. She has fond memories of listening to the show as a child with her family growing up in Monroe, NY.
