The Sliabh Luachra Music Trail is a joint initiative involving the Arts Offices of Cork and Kerry County Councils. Sliabh Luachra is associated with a very specific and idiomatic traditional music style and through the development of the Sliabh Luachra Music Trail we aim to celebrate this tradition. Among the objectives include a range of measures that aim to promote and preserve the region’s unique musical heritage.
