Ta an muinteoir damhsa tinn. Mar sin, ni bheidh aon ranganna damhsa anocht (La na Samhna)
Craobh Chualann was in Belfast on Saturday, represented by Aimee Farrell-Courtney, who teaches the bodhrán, and James O’Floinn. Aimee and James were flying the flag for Irish music at Stormont as part of International Piping Day and a large crowd of locals, visitors and MLAs enjoyed the Monaghan Jig, Nead na Fuiseoige and other tunes. It was thrilling to see this historic building, so long a symbol of division, united in appreciating fine music and extending such great hospitality to traditional musicians. Congratulations are due to Helena Rowsome, who hosted the event and all those involved in organising it.
Ni bheidh aon ranganna ar an 25th Deireadh Fomhair. Deis daoibh uilig dul chuig an Oireachtas!

“Ni fhaca mé a leithéid” said our Chairman. How right he was. Unprecedented numbers of people descended on the Cultúrlann last night to register for classes, which start next week. For most of the evening, the queue was out of the room, up the corridor, out the door and up the steps outside. There was barely room for the younger musicians, including Siobhán Paircéir who had come up from Limerick, to play and create ‘atmosphere’ at the fireplace, such was the press of people. In the end, numbers, rather than the music, had to create its own momentum. Well done to everyone concerned.
