Born in Caherconlish in County Limerick, Nóirín Ní Riain studied music at University College, Cork. She later gained an M.A. degree for her research on traditional religious song in Irish. This research provided her with the inspiration and the basis for three recordings with the Benedictine monks of Glenstal Abbey, as well as two books and several articles. She is the recipient of many old style songs collected by her mentor and teacher, Pilip Ó Laoghaire. Also, she has learnt many spiritual songs in Hindi in India and in Ireland.
Nóirín Ní Riain performs regularly in Ireland and worldwide. She has also represented her country at many recent international gatherings, and performs very often with the Paul Winter Consort.
