Back in November, a Wexford grandmother and her fourteen grandchildren appeared on the historic Late Late Toy Show…
The Wexford grandmother, Maureen Codd, and her 14 grandchildren won the hearts of a nation following their family traditional Irish musical performance.
The band, which is called Cuckoo’s Nest, has played all over Ireland.
One segment of The Late Late Show last night was a ‘TradFest’ which highlighted an array of traditional Irish musicians and talent.
To conclude the show, the popular Wexford band Cuckoo’s Nest were welcomed back to Ireland’s The Late Late Show, hosted by Ryan Tubridy.
It’s safe to say that viewers of the long-running show were delighted to see the Wexford family traditional Irish band reappear on the show, with some people on social media calling for them to be on it every week.
Speaking to host Ryan Tubridy, Maureen explained what happened after their performance on the Late Late Toy Show.
“We got great applause in Mass. We had a great Christmas. We got a nice present of a turkey for Christmas, because of Cuckoo’s Nest.”
“I have 22 grandchildren, another one on the way, and some small ones on the way, who will be having auditions for Cuckoo’s Nest. They all love their music,” she said.
