Previously, Colm was a founder member of Irish folk group Kíla since 1987 when the band was founded. His involvement with Kíla began during his schooldays at Coláiste Eoin, an Irish Language secondary school (Meánscoil) in Co. Dublin, Ireland.

This included an Irish language version of the Burn the Maps track "Locusts" entitled "Lócáistí" on the SnG05 album in 2005 and more recently a song called "Ciúnas" in the 2006 album Ceol 06.
