Féile Cnoc na Gaoithe, Tulla Comhaltas Cultural Centre, TG4

"Weekend music festival at end of June in Tulla, County Clare, with special emphasis on the fiddle. Cnoc na Gaoithe, the Tulla Comhaltas Cultural Centre, is the 17th Comhaltas Cultural Centre in Ireland. Our mission is to promote, preserve and showcase the rich Irish traditions and culture of the Tulla and the East Clarearea. The centre is situated in the heartland of East Clare, on top of the famous Hill of Tulla, an area renowned for traditional Irish music, song and dance. The name Cnoc na Gaoithe translates in English as the Windswept Hill, made famous by the late Kerry man Bryan MacMahon in his song "Lament for Tommy Daly" in praise of the great Tulla and Clare goalkeeper, Dr. Tommy Daly."
