Saturday Night Concert 8PM at Community Centre

Andrew Connally and Friends

“I’m over the moon to be able to announce I’ll be playing on Clare Island as part of the Feile Ceoil. This coincides with the launch of my first solo album and is the perfect venue for its first night. The album has some of my favourite musicians on – Stephen Doherty, Pat Coyne and David Doocey – so I’m extremely biased, but I’m very proud of it. The lads will be joining me and performing with me on the night. The title track of the album is ‘Every Step To Clare Island’, a song I wrote a while back about what could have been a journey taken by my Grandfather – Patrick Winters – from Liverpool back to Clare Island. His Island. Our Island. An island I love… can’t wait. ”     Andrew Connally
