BIRR is the hometown of our Ardchisteoir Pádraig Ó Dufaigh. Here he relates what Craobh Biorra have been doing in these difficult times: Having been deprived of the opportunity to get together for their regular monthly session of music, due to the Covid19 virus, the musicians of the branch, not to be outdone, hit on a novel idea.

Drawing on the technical expertise of David Kinsella and Richard Kennedy they put together a virtual session which featured many of the musicians who contribute to the monthly gatherings and recorded it on video.
This can be accessed on the Birr Comhaltas Facebook and the title of the clip is “The Sallygardens in Lockdown”. In addition, David has put up several tuition pieces for the benefit of the pupils of the music class on the branch web-site “birrcomhaltas.net”.
