About The Priests

As a classical music group, The Priests are three Roman Catholic priests from Northern Ireland who perform classical music that’s intended to appeal to a broad, pop-minded audience. When The Priests released their eponymously-titled album in 2008, they only had a small idea of what was about to happen to them. The Priests had huge record sales, record-breaking triumphs and established global fame. Frs. Martin O’Hagan, Eugene O’Hagan and David Delargy are amongst the most recognized and successful acts in both the religious and secular worlds. Their debut album, sold at such a pace, it secured them a place in the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest-selling classical debut ever.  A story about their musical life, ‘Raising The Roof’ is currently in pre-production and should be in cinemas in late 2014. 

They fascinated the global media and graced the pages of all manner of publications including Time Magazine, sharing sofa space with TV hosts the world over.  They have sung to audiences that include the British Royal Family and the Irish President.  They were nominated for Classical Brit Awards for Classical Album of the Year for three consecutive years and in September 2010, the Priests shared a stage with Pope Benedict XIV before a crowd of 80,000 people in London’s Hyde Park.  Millions more watched on television.
