Mundy’s debut album Jellylegs in 1996 yielded such hit songs Gin and Tonic Sky Life‘۪s A Cinch and cc which featured on the soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann’۪s Romeo & Juliet. Following Jellylegs, Mundy went on to release the multi-platinum record 24 Star Hotel, and then Raining Down Arrows, hitting the #1 slot in the Irish Album Charts. His first live album Live and Confusion followed, recorded at a storming and sold out Vicar St show. Galway Girl was recorded as an encore and went on to become the bestselling single and most downloaded song two years in a row in Ireland (2007 / 2008).

“The Galway Girl [from Mundy’s live album Live & Confusion] is the one thing I’m sure to be remembered for. I owe a lot of that to Mundy… the biggest hit was his version. People probably won’t even remember who the hell I was, but they’re going to be singing that song in Ireland for a long time. I really do believe that. And that’s the only kind of immortality anybody can hope for.Steve Earle. Since then there have been a slew of albums and touring the world with shows as far afield as The Royal Albert Hall and the small matter of performing for Barack Obama on his Irish visit, and at his home in The White House, and now in 2017 Mundy performs for the 41st Port Fairy Folk Festival.
