Tuairimí faoi Scoil Cheoil an Earraigh 2011

Hi Niamh and Breanndàn, here is Chantal, the french woman attending the festival. Thanks & congratulations for the whole Scoil Cheoil, it was great fun and exquisite music – above all, the fantastic spirit of Music blowing through all of you. I hope to come back next year. Hopefully i won’t have to cross the sea to come – maybe i’ll move again to Ireland somewhen. Take care, and enjoy an earraigh. Chantal

It was one of the greatest weekends I’ve had…………and I will not ever put myself in that position again …going back on a Sunday!! It was hellish hard to leave I can tell you and I was very tired and emotional driving up the road!..:-( I hear Seamas’s choreography went a bit askew! Slán leibh le chéile. A

Once again, we all had a fantastic time at the scoil ceol, I hope it was a roaring success from your end of things. I particularly would like to thank you for organising the Guitar this year for Eoin. he was chuffed to bits after going up on stage to lead ” the Kerry Cow”!!! Sean Leahy must have the patience of a saint, Eoin thought he was the business and Sean gave him a plectrum he used and Eoin keeps it as his “lucky pick”! If you are speaking to Seán, please tell him Thanks! slàn go foíll, Bairb

Bhí an ócáid ar fad thar cionn, bhí gach éinne á rá. An-obair atá á dhéanamh agaibh chun tradisiúin agus dúchas na h-áite a chur chun cinn agus a caomhnú. Bhí an t-áth linn ‘bheith ann. Bhíomar go léir ag caint faoí cé chomh deas atá sé an slí a mbíonn páistí agus daoine fásta ann le chéile ag baint taitneamh as an féile agus ag seint ceol le chéile. Tá súil agam nach bhfuil sibh ro-thréachta anois ‘is go raibh seans agaibh bhúr scíth a ligint i ndiadh sin! Sarah

Brendan & Niamh, Just a note to say ‘tks a mil’ for another great experience of Ballyferriter and its people. The festival is certainly now an annual event for my family and is marked on the calendar every year. Up to two years ago we had never been to that part of the country and since 2009 we have been down 5 times so the contribution of the festival to ongoing tourism should not be overlooked. Looking forward to 2012! Dave

Hi Niamh, Thanks a million for sorting us out at the hotel for Scoil Cheoil. We thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. Buoyed the spirits for another while! Congratulations on pulling it all together. There’s something very special about this festival. Siobhán
