Northern Ireland superstars The Priests have succeeded where many UK artists failed to become a top seller in the American music charts.
Classical musical group The Priests have topped two Billboard charts which collate the most successful acts of 2010.

They are the top selling artist of the year in the US Billboard Traditional Classical artist chart.

The Priests are three hard working priests, Fr Eugene O’Hagan, his brother Ft Martin O’Hagan and Fr David Delargy.

Last month the singing trio have defended their decision to collaborate with Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan after criticism from fans.

They teamed up with MacGowan, a former heroin addict and famously misbehaving rock star, to produce their Christmas single The Little Drummer Boy.

Despite their global success, the trio continue to work in their respective parishes and in the Diocese of Down & Connor.
