    Eigse Mrs. Crotty Concertina festival

    by avanutria Updated Apr 4, 2011

    If you play anglo concertina you'll want to look into this festival.

    Mrs. Elizabeth Crotty (1885-1960) was a natural musician who enjoyed a unique mastery of the concertina. People would seek out her company and sit quietly captivated as she played. But what she loved most of all was teaching and encouraging young musicians. This festival honours her memory by providing concertina instruction to students of all ages and abilities, in a lovely seaside setting.

    In researching this information I just learned that the festival has incorporated fiddle instruction now as well! Excellent.

    Crotty's Pub: Great Irish pub

    by TheAndos Written Jun 29, 2011

    Very friendly and authentic Irish pub in a small town in the south of County Clare. One wet and cold afternoon in May we had a few beers and watched the golf and got talking to the owner. Came back for dinner, very good. We didn't stay there but they have B&B rooms upstairs (see their website). More chats with owner Kevin about golf - it was like meeting an old friend. Lots of history to the pub.

    Kilrush has a great golf course. It's usually very busy during the day, but if you wake up early you can have a great game

    Manchester Martyrs

    by grandmaR Updated Jun 28, 2007

    Favorite thing: In the center of the square is the monument to the 'Manchester Martyrs', also known as 'The Three Fenians', were Irish nationalists who were executed for the murder of a policeman during a prison break. William O'Mera Allen, Michael Larkin, and William Goold (aka O'Brien) were hanged in Manchester, England on November 23, 1867. These men were caught and convicted for their rescue of Colonel Thomas J. Kelly and Captain Timothy Deasy. The rescue took place on the borders of West Gorton and Ardwick, to the immediate south east of Manchester City Centre.

    (Spparently these guys who attacked a van that was transporting some Irish nationalists from one prison to another had to bad luck to kill a policeman when they fired at the lock on the van at the exact moment that the policeman was looking out the keyhole to see what was going on).
