A special session of Listowel Rambling House will take place on St. Patrick’s Day, Friday March 17th from 3 to 6 pm. The “rambling house” tradition has been revived in recent years, particularly in North Kerry, where people come together to be entertained by songs, recitations, stories, and dance. Musicians, singers and storytellers are invited along to perform in an informal setting, and anyone can join in the fun. Admission is free and a cup of tea and traditional brack will be served at half time! Our regular session of Listowel Rambling House takes place on the last Thursday of every month from 9.15 pm.
Next session – Thursday March 30th
