We were at Willy Clancy Week way back in 1990. Last year we went to Miltown Malbay (not during WC Week) and tried to find two pubs important to singers, to wit, Gleason's and McCarthy's. We got lost a lot but we're pretty sure we passed both of them and neither one is a pub anymore. Is that correct?

Hi Bev and Jerry,
Both of those pubs are still serving great Guinness and loads of tunes and songs.

Miltown is a very different place outside the Willie Week! Gleeson's has a weekly session with set dancing on Sunday nights. McCarthy's , I think, only opens occasionally at the best of times. One of my more bizarre experiences in Irish Music is to leave a session in McCarthy's about two in the morning, well satisfied after a good night's singing and a few tunes, - and meet traffic heading out to the same pub to start the night in earnest!

regards

As a matter of fact, I'm on my way there this year. I'll be in Scotland in June & July playing at a festival in Skye and doing some research in the Western Isles. When it's done (probably 7 or 8 July) I'll make my way to Ireland and Miltown Malbay!   

I'm quite excited about it, will there be a Mudcat contingent?

During the day, singing tends to be in Marrinan's pub on the main street. They go to ground later in the day....


See you there

I've been known to be in sessions during the Joe Mooney summer school and find myself having breakfast in the pub without leaving the session from the night before! FAB!

Walking home with the birds, and then straight off to singing lessons til 12, then collapse and a sleep until it all happens again! What a week!!!

We will be there is year 2004 at least for the last weekend and Monday. It would be nice to be able to have play - any advice on where to go and when - or indeed where not to go - would be very welcome?
