Trad night at the Coach: Another traditional music night will be held in the Coach Inn on Friday 26th April. Our first night was a great success and we welcome everyone back for another lively night of entertainment. The legendary Mickey Dunne will be back playing uileann pipes and fiddle supported by a group of musicians, a few singers and we will dance a set or two. Starting at 9.30pm so we can fit it all in. Your support would be most welcome to make the Irish night a regular feature locally.
