The Irish pop-rock band Ceili Rain has released eight all-original recordings and has been recognized with fourteen Unity Awards by the United Catholic Music and Video Association. Ceili Rain has been providing its own brand of all-original, uplifting, and joyful Irish flavored music to Catholic dioceses, parishes, youth gatherings, liturgies, adorations, festivals, and fundraisers, both nationally and internationally for 24 years. In 2015, Bob Halligan, Jr., the founder and lead singer for Ceili Rain, performed his original music for a Papal gathering of over 100,000 attendees in
Turin, Italy. Mr. Halligan was the only American music artist invited to perform for the events surrounding the Popeʼs visit.
