Inis Mór, the largest of the Aran Islands on the West Coast of Ireland, and a place steeped in Celtic Heritage, was the inspirational place where Celtic Passage was written connecting us to the power of the Celtic world.

The Celts believed in the existence of other worlds known as the Land of the Sí (spirit). The Druid or Shaman would travel to these other worlds at will and return with insight into problems and challenges of everyday life.

You are invited on this adventure, an odyssey through this other world. Celtic Passage calls us to remember, to return to the natural rhythms that connect us to a deeper and more joyful experience of life.

It is a musical journey of relationship - to self, to others and to the wisdom of our Celtic ancestors, exploring themes of life and death, the earth and nature, the savagery of war, the redemption of love and ultimately the splendor of creation.

It is the sound of Sunda that calls us home, to the seasons of our own heart.

With harp, fiddle, flute, bodhran and more, Celtic Passage is a musical journey to the land of the Spirit, a bold trek to the heart of this ancient tradition.

My nephew Dermot Kennedy released this video for his song Island Fires and Families. The island has been a great place of comfort and inspiration for us both. So proud that he chose my home and the island of Inis Mór to capture the essence of welcome, community, spirituality and Home. You too are welcome to experience the power and beauty of this island .

A song of Peace composed and performed by Deirdre Ni Chinneide. Deirdre performed this song live at the Convention Centre Dublin on 21st September 2011 - the 30th UN International Day of Peace during the Opening Ceremonies. The Peace Conference was organised by Instruments of Peace.


Trained as a psychotherapist/ spiritual director and workshop facilitator, she has worked all over Ireland, the U.S.A and Europe including Bosnia and Kosovo. The Aran islands with its unique history, culture and natural beauty provides a special setting for her retreat work, and was the place of inspiration for her CD Celtic Passage a journey of the heart which Deirdre composed, performed and released with Sounds True USA and which won Celtic album of the year on its release in 2007 . She has performed her music in Ireland and at Celtic festivals in Brittany and the USA and has regularly appeared on National Radio and Television.
