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.

Thank You

As the 32nd Joe Mooney Summer School comes to a conclusion we would like to gratefully acknowledge the help and support of our many local volunteers who gave so willingly and selflessly of their time over the past week. Your commitment and dedication is a remarkable reflection of community spirit at its best. The Summer School was a huge success and the positive feedback from participants and visitors alike has been overwhelming. This is largely due to your efforts and the pride you have in your community.
We would also like acknowledge the role of the Leitrim Volunteer Service for all their work during the week.
Without the support of all of our volunteers the event simply could not have gone ahead. We are deeply indebted to you all.
Mìle Buìochas.
The Joe Mooney Summer School Committee.
