In the 1990s, Christy Cooney formed Riley’s Boot, a trio with Greg Rough and Mark Leigh, developing into Celtic Storm, a band which still performs, with a variety of talented musical friends, to this day. In 2015 Christy was awarded the honour of ‘Legend of the Lake’, by the Lake School of Celtic Music, Song and Dance, in recognition of his contributions to the school, held each year in January, in the beautiful village of Koroit in Victoria. In the words of Anthony O’Neill, a gifted musical friend, ‘Christy Cooney has kept traditional Irish music alive and well in Australia.’ Christy now lives happily in Apollo Bay with his wife Linda, regularly running an Irish session, and still gigging with his many musical friends around Victoria.
