Is anybody out there going to Clonakilty in July to the Roy Harper gigs at De Barras? I, and me mate Paul, are goin over from Manchester. We've booked the tickets but not accomodation yet. Roy's wife Tracy reckons they may be able to organise a group booking in one of the hotels or guest houses which would be useful.

Oh and thanks Martin Ryan & Ulick for the info on Blarney Roses!

having recently spent a couple of days there, I'd say it's worth going to Clonakilty, Co Cork, Ireland most any time. There are Tues night sessions at O'Donovans hotel and several pubs hold sessions and gigs, traditional and modern music

also there are plenty of beaches nearby, and the brambles had blossoms in late Dec

also if you are going to be in the area over a weekend and have your hiking boots and the stamina for it, go out with the local walking group - you should be able to get info from O'Donovan's hotel. A few walkers play instruments and many sing (in public), so be prepared for a pub session after the day's walking. I remember some years ago I went out with a walking group from Waterford City - we went to the Comeragh Mountains - and at the end of the walk a couple of walkers brought out banjos from the boots of their cars and we had a session. Never happens with the group I go walking with in Derry, alas.

At the back of O'Donovan's is An Teach Beag a small pub which has a traditional music session every night during the summer and is well worth going to. The Tuesday night session in O'Donovan's is a great night and is usually packed with musician's and visitors, as well as the locals who support it. (visiting musicians always made welcome)

Don't forget to visit the site of the great Michael Collins' birthplace while you are there. It's only a few miles from the town.
