Sean McCarthy Community Group

The Sean McCarthy Weekend Festival was initiated back in 1993 in honour of one of the greatest song writers ever produced. .Our programme of events is very much based on subjects that are dear to Sean such as the Sean McCarthy Ballad Competition Story Telling Dancing Music & the Bog. Any money after the weekend is invested in the village. The weekend helps the village to meet people who emigrated and return to celebrate with the community.
