Love Live Music Day Ennis

Kilfenora Ceili Band
Soft rain  failed to dampen spirits yesterday as Ennis marked International Music Day with an open air gig in Abbey Street car park.  Titled 'Clare Connections',  and featuring a stellar line up. the musicians  including  heavyweights, , Lunasa , the Kilfenora Ceili Band, the Teetotalers, newcomers, Socks in the Frying Pan and our very own 'Darlin Girl from Clare' Maura O Connell who sang her hit  My Irish Molly at the finale.  History was made as Martin Hayes, long associated with the Tulla Ceili Band joined rivals from Kilfenora  for the last set of reels. This was music to set your feet dancing and while most of us contented ourselves with a bit of toe tapping and gentle swaying, a group of ladies burst into an umbrella dance, a variation of the Brush Dance.

The event was an initiative brought to fruition by a team of local business people and councillors. Bravo to Tracy Crawford of BallyO Promotions who coordinated the event.
