Plenty of music but little sunshine on the menu for Comeraghs at the Festival of Food!


We were very active at the recent West Waterford Festival of Food, with some of our young Musicians performing at the very first event of the festival -  the Official Opening in the Civic Offices in Dungarvan on Thursday, April 11th

On Saturday night, the branch hosted a Festival Open Session and Céilí in Grattan Square from 7pm to 9pm. Unfortunately, the weather was dismal although a hardy group of enthusiasts seemed determined not to let the cold wind and rain prevent them from joining us for a set. The Marquee kept the rain off us, but the Siege of Ennis raised a few lively splashes as the feet came in contact with the odd puddle!  We soon warmed up however….some of the lads sang a few songs, the Musicians played plenty of reels and jigs to keep the feet tapping and the natter and the chatter grew louder in between!  We salute all those hardy souls – musicians, dancers, singers and listeners who braved the elements to join us in the tent in the Square.

Our Musicians were back in action again on the following day -  entertaining the large crowds attending the Festival Farmer’s Sunday Market. Thankfully the weather was considerably drier – although the high winds added somewhat to the acoustics on the Gig Rig! Let’s all hope that the weather will be a touch more seasonal when the TradFest rolls ‘round at the end of May……
