One of the finest Irish albums of 2013”

Jim Carroll, The Irish Times

“Heart-swelling, surprising, fresh and beautiful, it’s exactly what I look for in music”


“They are an extraordinary band, big band, big line up, lots of instruments, lots of imagination, all sorts going on … they are something special”

John Kelly, RTÉ Lyric FM

“Absolutely captivating and enchanting stuff … very refreshing and original.”

Ellen Cranitch, RTÉ Lyric FM

“Very developed, soulful and meditative music from an impressive musical intelligence”

Tony MacMahon

"This may be an album for those who think they don't (or won't) like Irish music. Aficionados may find themselves both challenged and delighted by the resonance achieved through Ériu's well-rounded approach. The musicians are young still, but their expressiveness is colored by patience beyond their years. That, in and of itself, is something to cherish."

Tyran Grillo, Rootsworld
