An outdoor concert is to be held this Friday at The Yard in Ennnistymon with all funds raised going towards ongoing refurbishment.
Over the past three years, Ennistymon and District Sports and Amenity Partnership have led the refurbishment of the Old CBS Primary School yard. It now has a multi-use astro-turf surface which is used for a wide variety of outdoor activities and sports.
Ennistymon CBS, North-West Clare Family Resource Centre, Clare County Council, local clubs and volunteers have helped to support the project in recent years which inspired the theme ‘play your part’.
To help raise further funds including equipment and running costs as its use expands, an outdoor concert takes place this Friday (August 27th) at 7pm at The Yard. Tickets cost €20 with the crowd limited to 100, tickets can be purchased at local outlets including the post office, Hayes Print and public houses.
Enda Haren is among the musicians on the night, he will joined by Adam Shapiro, Quentin Cooper, Mark Burke, James Barry, John O’Connell and Mary Haran McGleennon.
“Sure, we all will assemble, in our own little town, Our birthplace is calling, we can’t let it down, We’ll fly or hitch hike it, or go by shanks mare, To that town in the valley on the West Coast of Clare,” Enda said in reciting a line from Ennistymon on the Inagh, a song penned by Tadhg Haren.
He added, “It is great to see live music back in a safe environment. All current Covid protocols will be in force and the attention of attendees will be directed to all of these”.
