Latest Release: 'Ava' by Kieran O'Connell
Green South Records is very proud to have been involved in the recording, mixing and production of this track as well as making the video.
Kieran O'Connell has long been an advocate for the legalisation of cannibis oil to treat those who desperately need it.
Vera Twomey grew up, as did Kieran, in County Cork, Ireland. Her daughter Ava needs the oil to prevent life threatening epileptic seizures and she has been campaigning long and hard to make that a reality, not just for her daughter but for all people who need it.
Kieran O'Connell's new single, 'Ava' celebrates the battle Vera has been waging to have medical CBD legalised in Ireland. Vera has fought a long and hard against the the Irish Government and the HSE to enable CBD oil to be legally made available to treat Ava.
Ava has Dravet Syndrome, an intractabe form of drug-resistant epilepsy. The only thing that stops her life-threatening seizures is cannibis oil. While Vera has won a battle, there is still much work to do to ensure this medicine is made available to all who genuinely need it.

Green South Records is your home for Celtic, Folk and Roots music in Australia.
We are a collective of artists who have come together to support, promote and grow our music. Along with new releases, we are committed to reissuing previously undigitised Folk, Celtic and Roots records as part of our commitment to preserving the rich history of these songs.
Our mission is three-fold:
1 - there's a great untapped well of amazing albums from the seventies through to the nineties that haven't made it into the digital realm - we want to make sure these records are preserved for all time.
2 - The Celtic, Folk and Roots scene continues to thrive and grow and we want to be at the forefront of bringing these new releases to you.
3 - We want to nurture and develop the next wave of artists coming through. It's our aim to provide them with the platform they need to get their music heard.
Every time you make a purchase on any of the available digital platforms, you are directly supporting the artist and the label. We provide equitable and balanced splits with all our artists to ensure everyone is properly renumerated for their hard work.
