Then at 8pm the headline act will be great new trad band “The Conifers”.  This is a great young band who’s line up includes Bryan O’Leary from Turreencahill.  Bryan is known locally as the grandson of the famous Johnny O’Leary – indeed well known to those who used to frequent Dan O’Connells in Knocknagree.  The concert promises to be fantastic with a mixture of music and song from the 5 members who come from all over Ireland.
But the fun doesn’t stop there.  The Wallis Arms is our festival hub, and the music will continue after the concert:  Those who wish to just hang out are very welcome, but there will also be a Trad Disco – young James Linehan will be the DJ for this first of a kind event for Millstreet in the back room of The Wallis Arms and – who knows – there could be a breakout of tunes in the front bar as well.
Admission to the concert is €15 which includes entry to the trad disco.  But, if you just want to arrive for the disco admission is a mere €5.  Come along and see what you think!!!
