Lá Fhéile Padraig

Musicians From Comeraghs Comhaltas Playing On St. Patrick's Day20th March 2013

It was a great weekend! A lively group of our Musicians played for the very large crowd in the Square on Saturday night before the fireworks. We were back out again on Sunday, Lá Fhéile Padraig, when a big contingent of our younger members arrived on the Gig Rig to entertain those waiting for the Parade. There is nothing like a bit of live music to stir up a great atmosphere and the youngsters created a lot of excitement as they produced top class music and dancing, much to the delight of the waiting crowd. The young musicans and dancers are always delighted and very proud to showcase their talent on this, the day when we particularly celebrate our Irish culture, music and heritage. And…speaking of all things cultural, - further down the road, the boys were hitching up the float and getting the tractor going. We gave them a great cheer as they went past, and an even bigger one when they returned for the second time past the reviewing stand to hear that they had won the Best Float in the Irish Language. Big thanks to everyone who helped out in the preparations of the Float and indeed, all the events over the weekend. Maith sibh! 
After all the excitement, it was back to Lawlor's for a family session that turned into a céilí mór le rince scuaib agus rince seit, rince amhain agus ansin rince eile! Bhí morán ceol agus craic againn Eventually, we admitted defeat and dragged ourselves, our flags, shamrock and face-painted children back home to recover for another year
