Scoil Cheoil an Earraigh organisers are delighted with the continued support of the Arts Council’s Small Festivals Scheme who recently announced grant aid totalling €12,000 for the upcoming Scoil Cheoil. The grant will go towards the costs of bringing artists to West Kerry for the annual 5 day event.

As well as the usual classes and sessions, highlights this year will include the Friday Scottish Irish concert in Ionad an Bhlascaoid Dún Chaoin as well as the big concert on Saturday night in Feothanach Hall featuring musicians from Dublin, Clare and Conamara. Scoil Cheoil an Earraigh will take place during the February mid-term break from Wednesday 15th to Sunday 19th
