Kilrush Triple Distilled

About The Band

Based out of the Southern Tier region of New York, Kilrush is the premier band specializing in a wide range of musical styles from traditional Irish to contemporary Celtic and Celtic rock.

Kilrush was formed in 2001 as a traditional session group that played in coffee shops and pubs throughout the region. The band is named for the town of Kilrush, a coastal town in Ireland’s County Clare. It is also the ancestral home of one of the founding members.

In the twenty-plus years since, Kilrush has played countless venues and festivals such as The Great American Irish Festival, Irish 2000, The Hooley on the Hudson and many more.
