Born Edmond Enright in the rural town of Birr, County Offaly, Mundy moved to Dublin in 1993, at the age of 18 and took his place on the energetic busking circuit. It was during this period that he penned some of his greatest hits including, ‘Gin & Tonic Sky’ & ‘Life’s A Cinch’. Mundy’s first album ‘Jelly Legs’ was released in October 1996 to critical acclaim and went on to sell 50,000 copies.
Mundy has since gone on to release a further eight albums creating his own flavour of acoustic, folk-based pop/rock. His album Raining Down Arrows went straight in to the Irish Charts at number 1, he has enjoyed gold and multi-platinum record sales and has picked up a number of awards including the Meteor Music award for ‘Best Male’ and ‘Most Downloaded Song’ 2 ears running for his rousing rendition of ‘Galway Girl’ featuring Irish traditional musician Sharon Shannon.
Mundy’s music has allowed him travel the world supporting some of the greats; bob Dylan, Neil Young, Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris, R.E.M, Oasis, White Stripes and the Pogues to name a few. Most recently however, Mundy was invited to perform for perhaps his most prestigious audience to date , i.e. the White House for president Barrack Obama as part of their St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.
Mundy certainly has an impressive CV but there is no sign of the Offaly man slowing down touring Ireland, UK, Europe, North America, Australia and Asia. He is currently back in the studio working on a new album for release in 2020.
St Mary’s Collegiate Church is thrilled to welcome Mundy to the historic St. Mary’s Collegiate Church on the eve of the 2020 IRONKIDS and IRONMAN Ireland Cork celebrations.
