Cooley Collins Festival
South County Galway is one of the great locales for authentic traditional Irish Music. Each Fall the ancient town of Gort , capital of South County Galway, hosts a unique gathering of outstanding local musicians and their friends, playing together over a long weekend of fun and fine music in tribute to two of Ireland 's greatest musicians, local men both, Kieran Collins and Joe Cooley. Whilst both “musicianers” have passed over to the great session in the sky their musical heirs and accompanists continue their heritage, the streets of Gort echoing to the passionate sound of South Galway and North Clare.
