Fields of Athenry

by Ratlin Bog Sisters

Ratlin Bog Sisters - Irish/Folk Music ‘THE RATTLIN BOG SISTERS’ You’ve probably all seen the video over Christmas. It’s already racked up millions of views since it was featured in November, along with hundreds of thousands of comments and likes. The “Rattlin Bog” clip started off as a simple sing-song at 5am in the ‘after’s’ of the wedding of Patrice O’Connor and Donagh Davern in Kilshane House, Co. Tipperary on 30th October 2017. Patrice comes from a family embedded in music and it was therefore no surprise that a sing-song started after the wedding. However, what has happened since has been phenomenal, as the video of Patrice’s sister Clodagh McCarthy singing, with Patrice harmonizing, has gone viral with views as follows: Lovin.ie 2.3 Million Views Independent.ie 4.6 Million Views Daily Mirror 692K views Irish Post 54.4 Million Views (17/1/18) The piece has also been shared by on-line news forums such as Examiner.ie, Evoke.ie, the Evening Echo and radio stations

Album Notes
‘THE RATTLIN BOG SISTERS’

You’ve probably all seen the video over Christmas. It’s already racked up millions of views since it was featured in November, along with hundreds of thousands of comments and likes. The “Rattlin Bog” clip started off as a simple sing-song at 5am in the ‘after’s’ of the wedding of Patrice O’Connor and Donagh Davern in Kilshane House, Co. Tipperary on 30th October 2017. Patrice comes from a family embedded in music and it was therefore no surprise that a sing-song started after the wedding. However, what has happened since has been phenomenal, as the video of Patrice’s sister Clodagh McCarthy singing, with Patrice harmonizing, has gone viral with views as follows:

Lovin.ie 2.3 Million Views
Independent.ie 4.6 Million Views
Daily Mirror 692K views
Irish Post 54.4 Million Views (17/1/18)

The piece has also been shared by on-line news forums such as Examiner.ie, Evoke.ie, the Evening Echo and radio stations such as Beat 102/103, with Extra.ie calling it “the Irish wedding singalong that’s taking over the internet”.

Both Codagh and Patrice have been receiving comments from all around the world, from countries such as Italy, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Tokyo and Zimbabwe, along with comments from all over America and many of the comments challenge others to learn the many verses of the song for their own upcoming nuptials! They have been asked to record the song for download which they are currently working on, along with some other Irish favourites.

Patrice commented “Many have commented on the connection between myself and my sister Clodagh in the video and how we combine to create this piece. We have been singing together since we were very young, so I guess it’s just second nature to us.”

Patrice is a four time All-Ireland winning singer who has studied music at the world renowned Sorbonne in Paris. She has toured both Europe and Australia with productions such as ‘To Dance on the Moon’ and ‘Spirit of Ireland’ and performed with internationally acclaimed vocal ensembles ‘Anuna’ and ‘New Dublin Voices’ as well as appearing as a soloist on RTE television.

Clodagh is a retail manager in Killarney. She has won a number of vocal competitions in her native Killarney and sings at weddings in Kerry and Cork. Clodagh and Patrice, as you can imagine, are called upon at all family gatherings to entertain.

So, with over 60 Million views…the piece that started out as a simple wedding sing-song at 5am just keeps on going!
