Brú Ború Cashel – 34th Summer Season Begins.

The 34th Brú Ború Summer Season will commence on Wednesday next, July 10th, and will continue until late August on each Wednesday and Thursday night, starting at 8:30pm.
This much-acclaimed show of Irish traditional entertainment has over the years attracted thousands of fans from all over Ireland and many tourists from abroad.

The show is a creative, fast-moving and innovative mixture of world-class talent from various parts of Ireland.

The originator and producer Úna Ó Murchú, a native of County Clare, says: “The talent now available through the work of Comhaltas at home and abroad provides a rich reservoir from which to select the Brú Ború team. The show has evolved through vision and experience over the years and the performers are a credit to Ireland”.

These include ace-accordionist Bobby Gardiner, latter who taught a Clare set to King Charles and Queen Camilla when they both visited Brú Ború as Prince and Princess.

Harpist Mary Kelly played for the Queen of England when she visited the Rock of Cashel and also in Leinster House for the 100th anniversary of Seanad Éireann.

Tadhg Maher is a well-known traditional singer who has performed worldwide. He is remembered for his farewell ballad at the burial of Vol. Paddy Maher, one of the “Forgotten Ten”, when his remains were brought back from Mountjoy Jail to his native place of Ballylanders.

The music ensemble is a fine blend of veteran and young performers where harp, uilleann pipes, fiddles, accordion, melodeon, mouthorgan, bodhráns, concertinas and flutes – in the hands of the maestros – combine to produce the unique Brú Ború sound.

The dancers, with their exciting routines, have won the hearts of all who experienced their performance at different locations.

The Brú Ború performing group have, during their 34 year history, brought the cultural traditions of Ireland to many parts of the world.
They represented Ireland at five World Expos, performed on the Great Wall of China and accompanied President Mary McAleese to perform for the Sultan of Oman.
When they performed on the Late Late Show Gay Byrne described them as ‘the best in the business’.

There are special rates for groups and pre-show dinner can also be booked in advance. Contact Tel.No. 062 61122 or info@bruboru.ie.
