Donal is currently on air twice a week with his RTE show Radio Activity, on Friday mornings from 10am-1pm with 2XM and on Sunday nights from 10pm - midnight on 2FM.
The Parish recording project, assembled by Donal Dineen late in 2010, began life three years previously with a show he put together for Body & Soul at the Electric Picnic in 2007 with Liam O Maonlai & Ronan O Snodaigh. That spectacular night ended with a promise to try & get together in the studio whenever time allowed. So finally, in January 2011, Donal spent a fortnight in the Exchequer Studios in Dublin with Liam & Niwel Tsumbu. The recording began by covering some of the ground they touched on in 2007's & subsequent Electric Picnic appearances but soon progressed to the composition of original material. New tracks will be released here as they come out, and you can expect a new release in Autumn 2013.
Liam is the songwriter in chief with vocal duties shared with Aminah Dastan from the group Madu. Subsequent sessions took place with Ronán on persussion, Andre Antunes on drums and Peter Erdei on bass, all of whom have joined Donal onstage for live Parish shows over the last couple of years.
