Fergal has been playing music professionally since leaving school and has performed with some legends of Irish music including Frankie Gavin, Paul Brock, Kevin Crawford and has toured extensively with many successful young bands such as Teada, Ragús, Celtic Legends and The David Munnelly Band. He also was a founding member of upcoming band MONTO who are signed to the Universal record label and is featured heavily on their debut album due for release later this year.
