There was plenty of singing and music at the Fingal Folk club on celebrating four years in existence.

FOUR years has flown for members of Fingal Folk Club which has just celebrated another year in existence with a night to remember in Ballyboughal.

The club, which meets twice a month at St Patrick's Hall, has gone from strength to strength since its inception and a great fifth year is already being planned.

Many local artists from the Fingal area perform on a regular basis when the club meets on the first and last Fridays of the month.

The club has also had several featured artists and many theme nights which have been so successful and keeps the music alive.

The nights offer a unique venue platform for musicians of all abilities to perform in an acoustic setting be they beginners, semi-retired or regular performing artists.

It's been a busy couple of weeks for the club. Following hot on the heels from its fourth birthday celebrations, the club hosted a country jamboree night featuring singer songwriter JP Ryan last Friday.

JP Ryan has opened for Rod Stewart playing in a line-up that included Natasha Bedingfield and a host of additional acts.

The club's next meeting is Friday, April 25 at 8pm. Admission is €5 for adults and children are free. Musicians are asked to make a donation.
