Eoin O’Sullivan (Sliabh Luachra musician in residence) hosted a music workshop on Friday May 17th.His objective was to gather students who play traditional Irish music together for an informative talk and workshop on the music of Sliabh Luachra.

MCS had welcomed Eoin to our school to give a recital earlier in the year and as a result he invited students from our school to participate in Friday’s activities. 11 students represented our school alongside students from Abbeyfeale, Boherbue and Castleisland. Eoin was joined by accomplished Sliabh Luachra musicians Bryan O’Leary & Niamh Ní Charra on the day and their interesting accounts of their personal musical journeys was both interesting and inspiring.

The sharing and practicing of new polkas and slides culminated with an afternoon performance. A very enjoyable day was had by all. Hopefully there will be similar gatherings to come!
