The Sliabh Luachra Summer classes will take place from 23rd to the 26th of July. 

The annual summer camp for children aged from 6 to 16 years takes place from the 11th to the 22nd of August. This camp has been a huge success with children starting to play music, to sing and to dance at an early age. During the camp children can expect to learn a few simple tunes on the tin whistle, those playing already will learn other tunes, they will learn 2 or 3 songs and 4 or 5 céilí dances as well as having much fun and enjoyment.    We thank Jack Roche for this list of Bruach na Carraige activities.  (S.R.)

The Amazing Neily Joe

He drove the Millstreet ambulance going back decades ago
The likeable fellow Cornelius Murphy better known as Neily Joe
A stocky built cheerful fellow he was not very tall
And he was quite a character when memories of him we recall

When he retired from ambulance driving his better days long gone
But he was not one to sit back he kept on working on
He bought a tractor and done hire work for farmers in the Duhallow countryside
He earned his living in the honest way and in his work took pride
