Over the years, he has during those trips, been able to play with and learn from Paddy Canny, as well as from many other local musicians including flute and fiddle player Peadar O'Loughlin.
In 2004 he released Live at Mona's a live recording project praised by critics and fans alike as one of the best recent releases of Irish traditional music.He has taght at workshops during the Fleadh Nua in Ennis, and with the Armagh Piper's Club, as well as in many high-profile events in the US and Canada.
