I live in Tyrrellspass Co.Westmeath. I play guitar (badly) but I have a huge interest in traditional Irish music and piping in particular. Michael Cooney (The Piper Cooney) is a regular visitor to the village and plays in sessions locally. I was responsible for getting a group of local musicians together to play in The Cosy Corner which is on youtube. Micheal features on this recording. https://youtu.be/eh_fmL8OWZ8
I am involved in a community group called ETHOS - everything tyrrellspass has on show and we have a concert in the village featuring Blackie O’Connell and Cyril O’Donoghue. Would be great if you gave it a plug as I’m sure pipers in the midlands and further afield might be interested.
The Barn, Tyrrellspass, 3rd June 8.00 - 10.00
Blackie O’Connell and Cyril O’Donoghue.
