The Clancy Brothers Festival of Music and Art 2019 takes place this June Bank Holiday from May 29th to June 2nd.

There is a full weekend of events planned for all the family. With music in the theatres, pubs and on the streets, the River Festival, the Art Trail, drama, workshops and family fun, this year’s festival promises to be unmissable.

Music highlights of the 2018 festival include concerts by Dónal Clancy, Finbarr Clancy and Robbie O’Connell, Cordeen, Freddie White, ‘Musical Society Goes Folk!’ and the much anticipated return of the Bread and Beer Band. The ever-popular River Festival returns to Seán Healy Park with fun for all the family with an outdoor stage featuring Carouse and The Cedartowns.

There will be more music on the Pub Trail than ever, youth busking in the streets, nature and heritage walks and cycles, kayaking on the river, lunchtime theatre at the Brewery Lane, music and drama workshops for all ages, the Eoghan Power Memorial ballad singing competition and the ever-expanding Art Trail showcasing emerging and established artists from Carrick and across the South East and this year featuring the ‘Yarn Bombers’.

The full programme will be available in May. For more information please go to
