This year’s Ceol album is packed full of big names and great tunes.

But we were especially impressed to learn that massive American rapper Macklemore, and award-winning actress Saoirse Ronan were involved this year.

The talented duo lent their voices to track one, called Fáilte go CEOL which serves as an introduction for the 17 track album.

The highly anticipated album was launched on September 26th, and it didn’t disappoint.

Check out Macklemore and Saoirse’s intro:

Picture This, Hudson Taylor and JP Cooper and many others provide the music.
