Keenan’s career soars to new heights with Aer Lingus feature
Local singer/songwriter David Keenan’s career has been soaring for some time but he got July off to flying start after being featured in Aer Lingus’ on-board magazine Cara.
The 23-year-old, from Knockbridge, has been creating waves in the music scene in recent months with the likes of Hozier, Glen Hansard and Damien Dempsey amongst his admirers and hits such as ‘Cobwebs’ and ‘Tin Pan Alley’ earning huge plaudits on both social media and at events like Glastonbury and Body and Soul.
Now his talents are set to be brought to the one million-plus passengers who will use Aer Lingus to fly to locations near and far this summer. You can check out the July issue of Cara, featuring David, here.
It caps a memorable week for Keenan, who last Friday met with President Michael D Higgins, who he performed for at Áras an Uachtarain before discussing language and poetry.
