When critisizing a family like the Doyles it easy to forget the amount of time it takes to reach such a high standard.

I applaud those children for the hours of dedicated practice and further applaud their father for, what must have been, his constant encouragement.

I missed the Doyles in concert this year but I really enjoyed what I saw in 2011.
I did see the two lads out busking and was pleased by the improvement in their performance - much more polished.

I know its been said before, but this is the future and hopefully seeing such talented young people will interest others in the genre as. from what I see, there are nowhere near enough youngsters around in folk clubs and at festivals.
