Michael Dwyer Saturday Sunday

Michael Dwyer Saturday Sunday were busy days.

Saturday started with workshops and competitions. Dancing also from Cahermore National School. It was a great day with plenty to do, see and hear.

Later on in Jimmy’s Bar the Cork singers did their thing. A very popular group who also received a gift in thanks for their efforts.

Watch the Cork singers here, William Hammond having a turn…

Following on in the evening there was plenty to see and I hung around Jimmy’s to see Cormac and Cliodhna Begley doing a great set in Jimmy’s place.

Watch a video of Cormac and Cliodhna here


On Sunday the weather was at its best and the village was full of people enjoying the music.

Here is a video of Bryan O’Leary, Geroid O’Duinnin and friends giving a great show in Jimmy’s
