Toe tapping ceol and craic at The Rock

Bruach Na Carraige Rockchapel will hold a special Christmas Seisiun on Friday, January 4 at 8pm.

Ceoltoiri Sliabh Luachra`s latest DVD "Music from the Manuscripts will be available on the night. According to Jack Roche, this DVD contains "some of Ireland's oldest music from our most famous collectors, including local manuscripts from Dave Dan Curtin from Rockchapel, from his father Dan Curtin whose manuscripts go back to before 1850 and contain an interestingly older layer of Sliabh Luachra music that had vanished from the tradition."

He said that it also contains music from the manuscripts of Dave Leahy from Mountcollins who died in 1907.
