The truly amazing quilt-like cloud cover over Clara Mountain this autumnal Monday evening (15th Oct. 2018) as recorded from Liscahane, Millstreet.
Pictured from Mount Leader, Clara Road we view Clara Mountain with the many wonderful colours of Autumn.
A group of energetic walkers reach Clara Mountain’s summit at 12:30pm on Sunday. What a splendid panoramic view they must have experienced.

RTE’s “Ceilí House” from Rockchapel on Sat. 0ct. 20 and 27

The RTE radio one programme ‘Ceilí House’ will come from Bruach na Carraige, Rockchapel, on Saturday, 20th and Saturday, 27th October after the 9pm News.  It will feature the Rockchapel Comhaltas based group, Ceoltoirí Sliabh Luachra, performing some of Sliabh Luachra’s oldest music.  Much of this music comes from the manuscripts of Dave Dan Curtin of Stagmount, Rockchapel and the manuscripts of his father, Dan Curtin that go back to before 1850, and contain an older layer of Sliabh Luachra music that predates the polkas and slides that characterise the area now, and also from the manuscripts of Dave Leahy of Mountcollins who died in 1907.

We thank Jack Roche for this important notice.  (S.R.)
