A Note From Helena“To all those who joined me on ‘The Pursuit of Happiness’ East & West US Coast Tour in May 2018, I can’t begin to express my gratitude. Thank you so much.”

Helena’s new album ‘Tóraíocht Shonais’ (Pursuit of Happiness) is out now.

‘Tóraíocht Shonais’ is a collection of stories and songs that illustrate the history of Irish emigration to the United States & Canada.

“This album is beautiful piece of craftmanship and will be enjoyed by both the Irish diaspora family and those who simply have a love of Irish music and stories alike” – Travel Ireland Magazine, December 2017
