Club Ceoil is a social evening of music, song, dance and poetry which takes places in a variety of pubs and venues across the Glen of Aherlow. The entertainers are all amateur locals who love to perform and enjoy others performing.
It is run every Thursday evening during July and August for our summer season. We welcome the many visitors who are in the Glen at that time, many who will also get involved and sing or bring an instrument.
This summer two of our American visitors were traditional ukulele musicians and gave a wonderful performance in Templeneiry Church.
Club Ceoil enables the locals and visitors to meet and interact in a social setting, thus extending the welcome to our domestic and international visitors
The Glen 5k is a charity 5k walk/ run that supports local causes. It usually takes part in August and Runners & walkers of all abilities are welcome. http://glen5k.ie/
