ALBUM REVIEW: 'Nain's Kitchen' From FATEA Magazine: "Any album with a song about drinking hard cider has got something going for it. Catrin O'Neill has put together an album of traditional classics and contemporary gems. This is an album of stoves and crock pots rather than ovens and bowls, songs of the people, not the peers, but delightfully practical with nothing going to waste. O'Neill herself can turn her voice from songs, sang almost angelically in Gaelic to rough drinking songs that seem to put you over the drink drive limit just by listening. Refreshingly direct."

Rychard Carrington reports on Catrin O'Neill at The Junction, Cambridge. 2 December 2009 - Moving Tunes "...Catrin performed a varied set
with talent, grace and warmth, from tender love songs to drinking songs to tragic ballads. She sang beautifully and powerfully, accompanying herself on guitar and bodhran... Look out for her new album 'Nain's Kitchen'."

'Rock n Reel' Album Review: "...Catrin's own compositions have a gypsy romanticism, a cheering sense of the magic of love, music and nature, and a definite compatibility with the traditional material. The result is charming yet powerful..."
Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull: "Great Stuff! Lots of melodic and rhythmic form from the world of Traditional Folk."
