Conor Keane.

Conor Keane replaced Jackie Daly with Arcady on their latest album, "Many Happy Returns". Before that, he made a solo album, "Cooley's House", and worked with Four Men & A Dog, where he replaced their original box player, Donal Murphy. He also frequently plays with Shaskeen.
Conor plays a box made by Bertrand Gaillard, as far as I know in C#/D.

[I'm just back from this year's Willie Clancy Summer School in Miltown Malbay, and ended up in Conor Keane's box class. He's a very patient teacher, and a versatile box player. His box, the Gaillard, is indeed C#/D, and it was originally built for Jackie Daly, who sold it to Conor when he got his current instrument, the Saltarelle. Conor started out on the B/C, but since he took up the C#/D he hasn't looked back.]
