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!!!

This coming Monday April 15th, marks the anniversary of one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters – the sinking of the RMS Titanic.

On Where the road takes me this Sunday evening, John Greene travels to Ballydesmond to hear the story of Danny Buckley who survived the sinking.

 However, Danny’s luck ran out on the battlefields of World War one, when a sniper’s bullet ended his life, just a few short days before the war had ended.

At the American wake in Ballydesmond the night before he departed on the Titanic, Danny stood and sang ‘When the fields are white with daisies’. [read more …] “Remembering RMS Titanic on “Where the Road Takes Me” This Sunday at 7pm on C103″
