Eily’s Report – 4th July

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my weekly Report.

The sun goes up and the sun goes down and the hands of the clock keeps going around and this week all roads lead to the West, or the Westht  as they used to say. The first week of July sends music lovers of every ilk making their way to the Co. Clare town of Milltown Malbay. A town which grew from being a small rural village to a world famous hive of all things trad and all in the name of one of their talented pipers, the humble Willie Clancy who passed away over half a century ago. But his community refused to let him die. Instead they built a huge festival in his memory, to be held on the first week of July every year. They developed classes and concerts and opened them to all who wanted to learn and learn they did. Classes were held in rooms and parlours all over the place where local homeowners were willing to let a room for a few hours every day and going along the streets the sound of music came wafting out of these places. Age didn’t matter. The young and the not young sat side by side in their hunger for our traditional Irish music and how to take part in it. Needless to say they need listeners too, and I am one of them. I was fortunate to be part of the Sliabh Luachra group who made the trip across the ferry every year to bring their own branch of Irish Music to the multitudes. Their input was nothing short of being sensational, and today the tunes that were played by Johnnie O’Leary, his daughter Ellen(and now by his famous grandson Byron) and many others are being played all over the world. Music lovers came from Australia, America, Japan ,Russia and lots of places in between. Believe it or not, there are about six Irish Music outlets in Moscow. (Were before the war anyway) and some of our best  players go there to join in.
