Piping Heaven, Piping Hell

Considines Bar - Fri 29th May 4.30pm

Without a doubt, this has been the most innovative trad session format to come to Ennis. Established in May 2015 by noted Clare piper, Blackie O’Connell, it is a session of pipers, that takes place each Friday at 4.30pm in Considines Bar. The sessions have featured many great and well known pipers, including such luminaries as Paddy Keenan, Mickey Dunne, Matt Bashford, Máire Ní Ghráda, Eoin Ó Riabhaigh and Seán Talty. Celebrated musician and singer, Cyril O’Donoghue complements the power of the pipes with his wonderful bouzouki playing and singing. There is nothing quite like to sound of the music of up to 10 pipers spreading from the square in the centre of town through the narrow streets.
