“Here is a song we have liked for a long time and decided to record it. The song is called Aidan, Written by Rathcoole native Jeremiah O’Keeffe about his young nephew. Jeremiah is the writer of many fine songs . In this song he encourages children to enjoy childhood and not be in too much of a hurry to grow up. Although written a couple of decades ago the song lyrics are very relevant in today’s fast moving world.
Aidan was arranged and produced by Noel O’Leary from Millstreet a well known Musician and Producer.WishKelting everybody a very Happy Christmas and Peaceful New Year.” – The Kelts
