The band

Kelly McCullough is Raymond’s eldest daughter (28). Both she and her sister, Connaire, have accompanied Raymond off and on since 1993, when for three weeks they performed in town centres and other venues all over the south of Ireland, using a rented mobile coffee-shop bus - the ‘Tea Trawler’ - in a show called, ‘Let the Flame Burn!’.

Kelly is a professional photographer and took the shots shown in the Gallery. She is also an aspiring keyboard player with a Diploma in Media Studies, from Belfast Metropolitan College – with a focus on TV production and camera work – and a Degree in Professional Development. At present, she is working full time in administration.

Connaire McCullough is Raymond’s younger daughter (26), and has also been performing since 1993, when both girls also took part in an all-Ireland tour of music, mime and dance called, ‘Bridge the Gap’. Later that same year, the girls accompanied Raymond to Israel, when they performed in Jerusalem, Tiberias, Haifa and Tel Aviv.

Connaire, an accomplished writer and poet, graduated from Queen's University, Belfast, in English and Drama, completed a course in Newspaper Journalism (2005) and another course in Media Production, leading to placement with BBC Northern Ireland. She is currently learning guitar and bodhran while working with the BBC in Belfast.
