The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Listings - SIOB­HÁN LONG

West Kerry’s “rough di­a­mond” beauty is the set­ting for this year’s spring school, a gath­er­ing marked by an un­mis­tak­able wild­ness, run­ning in and around Bal­ly­fer­riter from Wed­nes­day to Sun­day Feb 17.

This year’s high­light is Bos­ton box player Joe Der­rane (above), who plays a con­cert in Hall na Feothanaí in Bal­ly­fer­riter on Fri 15th. Other guests on the night in­clude Tommy and Siob­hán Peo­ples and con­certina player Micheál Ó Raghal­laigh. Un­der the watch­ful eyes and ears of Bre­an­ndán Be­g­ley, Bal­ly­fer­riter is the place to catch im­promptu ses­sions, many of them at their best in the weak light of the late af­ter­noon.
