The Confiers is made up of five young musicians, all of whom are rooted in a strong musical background. While their music is energetic lively and has a wholesome sound, the band members strive to remain true to a traditional repertoire rooted in the regions of Clare, Sliabh luachra and Donegal. This is also shown through their repertoire of songs both in English and Irish. The Confers met while studying traditional music at the University of Limerick and have since developed a lasting friendship, which is evident in their music. In 2018 they won first place in the prestigious Michigan Irish Music Initiative competition in Dundalk.
