Matt Molloy's, Westport, County Mayo, where part of Lúnasa was recorded.

Lúnasa is an album by Lúnasa that was released twice, first in 1998 on their own label, and again in 2001 on Compass Records. It was the band's first major release. The piping on the album was done by John McSherry, as Cillian Vallely was not part of the group at the time.

The first release of the album contained eleven tracks, named for the months in the Irish calendar. 'Lúnasa', the word for August, was omitted. A twelfth track was added for the re-release.

Wayne Sheehy of Hothouse Flowers is a fan of the album, once commenting that he "loves" it.[1]
