Lena was a very good winner in the Eurovision last night.  You guys would be amazing to represent Ireland next year in Germany.  Please Go For It!  You have far better voices and stage presence than Lena!!


hiya derek is a legend



in 1985 my parents brought me under protest to the Limerick Rock 'N Roll club. I was 14 and loved it. I'm now 39 and cabin crew with Aer Lingus.When I saw Cyrstal Swing on Ellen on tv in the U.S. I rang my dad. He listened on the phone from home.

Well done. I was very proud. You now have 2 new fans.


I would like to buy a cd but can not find any here in South Africa. What can I do to get one?


Hi Gert. CDs can be purchased from this site - link.

I love you, I think your such good singers!!! especially dervla, and derek's legs, ohhhh..... Mary who does you hair???? I'll be in middleton over the summer with my friend Kelly, I cant wait to see ye then.

Hello, I'd love to see you perform but would yous ever do a gig in the north of ireland ?


Hi Crystal Swing,

I'm an American living in Sweden and just can't give up Ellen and I so glad I haven't.  I got to see you folks on her show.  You are talented and the most gracious people.

I hope you enjoyed your stay in California, my home state, and have many fond memories.

Good luck,


Well done Mary, Derek and Dervla! Great show last night in Letterkenny! I woke up in mighty form this morning!

Hope to see you in Kilross, Co. Tipperary!
I live in Bundoran so would love to see a date on your tour list for Bundoran. My mother will come up again from Limerick!

Best wishes,

Hello Crystal Swing,

I am a great fan of yours. I am going to see you in the opera house,  I would love a photograph taken  with ye.  Ye were fantastic on the Llate Late Show. Derek was brilliant singing.


Mary, Derek and Dervla,

I just wanted to say that I enjoyed your performance on the Ellen Show.  "He Drinks Tequila" is stuck in my brain now.  =)  That is one catchy song!  Best wishes to you!  I live in Rochester, New York, so I'm afraid I won't be able to catch any of your live performances.  =(


Mary, Derek and Dervla, I'd just like to say a huge well done to the three of ye after everything ye've achieved over the past number of weeks/months. All yer friends are SO proud of ye. The negative comments are nothing to be embarrassed about (although it'd be nice to be without them!). Keep it up

F. Finn

I just purchased your Best of Our Lives album , ordered it here in NH.  I am of Irish ancestry and visited the relatives over there in 1994.  I will be anxious to play your music to my sons, especially "He drinks Tequila". 

P. Shubelka

hey fellas!
i just wanted to say that i find ye to be incredibly talented and deserve everything ye get
reach for the stars my friends!!!


Can you please inform me of any dates you may be playing in Northern Ireland.



Hi Vivienne. Keep an eye on our 'Live Dates' page for details - link.

Hi Crystal Swing!

I think ye are just brilliant! I met Mary and Dervla today (18/4/2010) in Mahon Point, Cork ! Thanks so much for the photo ! Please come to Clonmel, Co.Tipperary soon! I REALLY want to see ye live! Keep singing and dancing!

I am delighted to see you all  doing so well,fantastic band. If you could bottle the "feel good factor" that you have,it would be bought all over the world. Wel done on promoting Ireland and Cork,what great ambassadors you all are. Hope to see playing soon. P.S. My 4yr old son sings Tequilla!

A. Nagle

Best Thing since the Judds.  Family talent is such a hard thing to find these days.  You definately belong in the same group as the Jackson 5, The Judds, The Carpenters, Just  ignore all these bad comments of jealousy.

P. Archer

If I had a venue for you to work here in Detroit, MI, USA, I would definately book you.  Saw you on Ellen and fell in love with you guys immediately.  Want to buy your album but would love an autographed copy before you get too big to sign those.  The best of luck to all and aim to the sky.

P. Archer

Hi Crystal Swing,
can't wait to see you with all my friends when ye come to Limerick. Ye are brilliant!!!

Joanne, Sarah and Aisling.
ps: is Derek single ???

You guys are wonderful and a massive well done on The Ellen Show. Enjoy the future, keep your feet on the ground and whatever happens can only be a truly positive experience.
Many congrats

Damien and family

Mary and gang,
first of all well done on the ellen show - ye made me so proud. Derek, you really can shake those knees.... I'm just wondering if ye will be doing a pub gig in Cork. I've seen ye in Ballinagree before ye were famous.
Again well done.

#1 fan

I saw you this week on Ellen and loved Tequila.  The three of you are so unique.  Derek is a hoot with his wiggly legs.  Don't let anyone criticize you or put you down.  Remember they booed Elvis for years before people finally "got him".  So just keep doing what you do   Come over to Canada soon.


You're appearance on the Ellen show only enhances what a lot of us know. Top talent, top performers, not to mention easy on the eye !!! Pleeeeease come to Clare soon.

H. Brigdale, Co. Clare

Hello Mary, Dervla and Derek.

I am absolutely thrilled with the way ye have handled the publicity and the fame since ye performed in Corrin Event Centre.  I am delighted with the way ye performed on TV in the USA.  I hope that ye will be able to handle the fame and the money!

J.J. Bunyan

Congratulations to ye all. Its great to see some great talent come out of Ireland. It would be great if ye got the band scene going again in halls around the country. Looking forward to seeing ye in Waterford. Well done its a joy to watch and listen to ye. Its just plain fun with talent of course.

Breda, Waterford

You guys are like "bottled joy" and make people laugh & smile.  How great! We need more of you instead of listening to stuff about Anglo & Nama. I saw you all on Ellen and I'm sure everyone in the tourist industry must love you for the interest you have created in Ireland as a holiday destination.
