The legendary Kilfenora Céilí Band are making the trip from the beautiful County Clare to perform for a special Céilí Mór on Easter Sunday, April 20th at Halla na Féile in Cashel.
The event coincides with the 1,000th anniversary of the death of Brian Boru.
The world-renowned Kilfenora Céilí Band will make this special trip to Cashel, where Brian Boru was himself crowned High King of Ireland at the famous Rock of Cashel, to play for a Céilí Mór at Halla na Féile on April 20th.
Cashel was intimately connected with Brian Boru throughout his life so it is of significance that the world famous Kilfenora Céilí Band will travel from the Banner County to Cashel of the Kings three days before the 1,000th anniversary of the death of this famous High King.
An interesting fact is that Brian Boru was himself an excellent harpist which resulted in the harp becoming the national emblem of Ireland.
Brian Boru, the greatest and the last High King of Ireland, led the great Irish clans onto the battlefield of Clontarf on Good Friday, April 23rd 1014 - he achieved a great victory over the Vikings, but paid dearly with his own life.
Come and mark the millennium of Brian Boru’s death with the iconic Kilfenora Céilí Band. The band will play a wonderful selection of Céilí and old time to suit both young and old in the famed Halla na Féile.
Bar facilities will be available on the night - admission €15. This will be a memorable night, so come to Halla na Féile in Cashel on Easter Sunday night.
