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.

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…
