Westport Scoil Cheoil
I am a keen traditional-Irish-musician and now travels nationally and internationally as a musician with my family: The Heneghans. I founded the successful summer school Westport-Scoil-Cheoil with my daughter Kate Heneghan. Westport is in Co. Mayo on the Atlantic-Ocean. The week long traditional Irish summer school attracts national and international participants who are keen to learn traditional Irish music. The variety of participants of Westport Scoil Cheoil vary from complete beginners (a lot of adult complete beginners from overseas) to excellent musicians looking to perfect their craft. Hope to welcome some of you to Westport!
