Céad Míle Fáilte
Every July Drumshanbo plays host to the award winning Joe Mooney Summer School, a week long festival of traditional Irish music, song and dance named after the man who did so much to promote the cause of Leitrim and his beloved town. The committee continue to emulate his high ideals, endeavouring to promote Leitrim’s heritage of traditional music while handing on the best traditions of the past to future generations.
The committee of the Joe Mooney Summer School wish to inform you that due to the Covid 19 pandemic the summer school will not take place this year. The overriding factor in our decision is the health and safety of participants, tutors, visitors and the local community. This cannot be guaranteed due to the uncertainty that lies ahead and as a result we feel this is the only real option open to us. Hopefully we will be back bigger and better in 2021 with our usual packed programme. Please stay safe and well.
Best wishes to you all.
The Joe Mooney Summer School Committee.
We expect that the Joe Mooney Summer School will run from July 17th to 24th 2021 .
( This will be confirmed later this summer )
We will looking forward to seeing you all back in Drumshanbo then.
