Music Trail

The Sliabh Luachra Music Trail works with music festivals, heritage centers and other venues to deliver a year round programme of concerts, talks, workshops and other events. We will be adding to these on a regular basis so please check back frequently.

There are many regular sessions which take place throughout the year.
