SCOIL CHEOIL AN EARRAIGH
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.
