She studied classical music on both instruments as well as playing traditional music, and won many prizes at competitions throughout Ireland.

She won a gold medal at the Feis Ceoil in Dublin, and later won the gold medal at the All-Ireland Fiddle Championship at the Oireachtas in 1955. After that, fiddle playing took a back seat and she concentrated on being a piano accompanist to other musicians, including Joe Burke and Seán Magure. She recorded her first of five solo albums in 1976; in 2006, after a gap of twenty-five years she recorded a new solo album. In 2003 Keegan received a special award at Boston College in appreciation of her life-long dedication to music and her invaluable contribution to Irish Cultural preservation. In 2005 she won the TG4 composer of the year award. Read more on Last.fm.
