We book Deirdre for our wedding last Oct after speaking with her for some time on line. As we had some odd requests it was difficult to get someone who could suit our needs but Deirdre assured us that she could meet them. We gave her a list of modern songs from artists like snowpatrol (chasing cars) for my wife's entrance to kings of Leon(use somebody) at the signing of the register, not only did she learn these new songs off for us but also met with my sister who sang at the wedding and played through out her songs. All in all Deirdre was a life safer as my wife left all the music up to me as my only job and she delivered. Thanks a mill.All the best.

We got married in the Glendalough Hotel at a civil ceremony in August 2009. Wanting to make the ceremony more personal to us we booked Deirdre to play the harp throughout the ceremony. Deirdre worked with us to choose the right music throughout and shared many ideas of suitable choices so we had a wide selection to choose from.

My own fond memories will always be of walking into the room with Deirdre playing 'she moves through the fair' on the harp, it literally brought tears to my eyes. She really is a gifted and talented player and made our day very special. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to play at any ceremony or gathering and I am more than happy to do so.
