The Priests Bio

The Priests are a Christian band made up of three Roman Catholic priests all from Northern Ireland. Fr Eugene and his brother Fr Martin O'Hagan are from Derry and Fr David Delargy is from Ballymena. The trio have been singing together since they boarded at St MacNissi's College, Garron Tower, Co Antrim. After signing record deal with SonyBMG in April 2008 the priests, all from the Diocese of Down & Connor, recorded their debut album in Ireland and Rome, with the unusual honour of having been allowed to record in St. Peter's Basilica, The Vatican.

Their debut album was produced by Mike Hedges and Sally Herbert. Mike Hedges has worked with, amongst others, U2, Dido and Manic Street Preachers. The eponymous album was released in Ireland on 14 November 2008 by Epic Records and has since been released worldwide in over thirty countries and preceded by an ITV documentary and PBS special in the United States. The initial idea for making of an album involving a priest was put in motion by Hedges himself. The original idea developed into a project involving the three priests after he and Epic Records head, Nick Raphael, heard a demo recording of their singing.
