Bealtaine birdsong concert in Coolnasmear Saturday May 16th 2015

Full House at Birdsong Night
What a pleasant surprise it was to be part of the crowd of enthusiastic listeners who turned up to Cúil na Sméar Hall on Saturday night.  In last week’s notes we referred to the dawn chorus but it was quite different “Bird Songs” we enjoyed at this event.  With an audience drawn from many parts of the South and South East not to mention Dublin, Limerick and Clare, the singers provided an amazing night’s entertainment.  In the unavoidable absence of Anne Mulqueen  the Berry brothers, Phil and Paddy came on board from the Leinster concert and joined the “Munster Five” made up of Máire Ní Chéileachair, Larry Joy, Tim Dennehy, Senan Lillis and Micheál Marrinan.
 In an interesting and absorbing programme in two halves of seven songs, each singer gave a knowledgeable introduction enlightening us to their consummate bardic skills and love of their culture of native song.  As usual our committee extended a céad míle fáilte with the usual tea, coffee and refreshments at the break.
