Mary’s style of music is deeply set in the mellow rhythm and swing of east Clare having being fortunate to have played with the musical masters of the area such as Martin Rochford, P Joe Hayes, Bill Malley and Joe Bane.  While Mary has performed mostly as a solo musician all over the world she has also toured with The Tulla Ceili Band,  the all women group Macalla, Breanndán Ó Beaglaoich,  Catherine McEvoy and also Martin Hayes. Mary has recorded three solo albums followed by a duet album “The Lady’s Cup of Tea” with her daughter Sorcha Costello. “The Lady’s Cup of Tea”  was described by Frankie Gavin as “Sincere, hypnotic and an overall delight”.
