SUPER-TALENTED Kilcummin singer and musician Ronan Kealy will be taking centre stage this month for the unveiling in Killarney of his EP.

Ronan, who performs under the name Junior Brother, will be launching his EP "F*** Off I Love You" in the INEC Acoustic Club on Saturday, May 21.

The 22-year-old has been writing music since childhood, and began recording and performing under the Junior Brother name five years ago.

Performing a unique, experimental and distinctly Irish style of alternative folk, Ronan's music has been featured on radio programmes such as Lyric FM's Blue of the Night, and he has supported acts such as Hothouse Flowers, RSAG and Mark Geary among others.

After gigging on the local scene for many years, Ronan moved to Dublin to study music in the BCFE Rock School. “With the tools and assistance gained from my experience, I recorded and completed the EP at home in Kilcummin,” said Ronan, who is the son of Liam Kealy, manager at The Gleneagle Hotel, and Bridget Kealy, a member of staff at St Oliver’s National School, Killarney.

The EP is currently available to download on iTunes, and can be streamed on Spotify, Amazon, Google Play and other streaming services.

For the launch in the INEC Acoustic Club on May 21, doors open at 8pm, with support on the night by special guest Kieran Mulvihill of Listowel, as well as local talent Peter Njihia.

Tickets will be available at the door, and copies of the EP will be available on the night.
