They were both members of the Irish Youth Orchestras and shared the concert stage together from a young age.

They both went on to study at the Royal College of Music, London, where they began to collaborate as duo partners. They have given numerous recitals in the UK and around Ireland over the intervening years, featuring standard and contemporary Irish repertoire and have commissioned several Irish composers.
