DUNLEER'S Irish traditional music scene is in safe hands, after marking 40 great years of Scoraíocht last weekend. The local group, based on the Barn Road, hosted a night of celebration to mark four decades of dedication to keeping the Irish language and culture alive in the mid-Louth area.

One of the special guests on the night was John Flanagan, who inspired the idea of having a 'céilí house' in Dunleer and turned the first sod on it.

Scoraíocht is very much about community, and they turned out for the special night, musicians, dancers and singers, along with some face painting and even a dog show.

For those seeking something even more different Tommy McCabe had chicks hatching – live!
