Páraic Mac Donnchadha has a particularly rhythmic style and sensitive interpretation of East Galway music. His musical style and repertoire has been hugely influenced by Paddy Kelly and Paddy Fahey, both fiddle-players and composers of great traditional tunes from East Galway. Last August, he released his distinctive, highly-regarded Banjo CD called Thar Am/Not Before Time… 39 Years in the Making. Páraic also played with Kevin Crawford and with Andrew McNamara on a live CD entitled Maiden Voyage and with Cormac Begley on the Tunes in the Church CD. Páraic has hosted a Geantraí programme.
