Michael Dwyer Festival 2018

Michael Dwyer Festival 2018, this year was the twentieth anniversary of the festival and the weather was absolutely fantastic. Musicians came from near and far and lots of great sessions were to be seen and heard.

On the opening night Two time Polka gave a cracking gig in the Lighthouse bar, every body was up dancing within a few minutes.

Watch a video from the Friday night in the Lighthouse bar here, Two Time Polka

Michael Dwyer Festival 2018

On the Saturday lot’s of things were happening, and I guess there are photos taken but that was not my job, we had some enjoyable pints out side the bars listening to a few bits of music between.

Sunday we were away bike racing, Neil got fourth…

On Monday night we went up to Jimmy’s for what has become the unofficial closing night.

and were treated to a song by Sue…

Watch a snippet of Sue’s song here, turn up the sound

Lehanmore Panto The Sound of Music

Lehanmore Panto The Sound of Music was a great success last night for the fourth and last performance. It was the fifth Panto in five years, written by Bill Griffin and Carina Mc Nally with all the cast adding a few lines here and there also. Behind the scenes were Bernie organising the whole show and tickets, Billy Murry who painted the sets and Sarah O’Connor who was prompting and doing the sounds.

Watch the Lehanmore “Sound of Music” Back Stage here

The kids had their own show “Tír Na nÓg” which was fantastic.
