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.)
