    Photos & Song: Heritage Tour 2016

    The Seosamh Mac Gabhann Summer School kicked off today with the annual heritage tour and with the year that it is local historian James Reddiough recalled activities post 1916 in the Kilmovee area and we will visit sites impacted during those troubled times.

    Paddy Jo kept us all entertained with rousing songs and performed “Paddy Boland” at the monument in Kilkelly.

    On we went to Urlaur Community Centre where Peter Nyland and Paul Phillips showed us letters made famous by the song “Kilkelly, Ireland” and revealed a few poetic licences had been used, nevertheless not taking from the moving & powerful song. From there we made the short trip back to Urlaur Abbey to visit the grave of Paddy McNamara, Bridget & Michael Hunt who also feature in the song.

    We arrived back at The Thatch around 5pm for some much welcome refreshments and a few more tunes and songs.

    Hope you enjoy the song and the photos, and don’t forget the official opening tomorrow evening more details here.
