The beauty of Muckross House was beamed into hundreds of thousands of homes across Ireland as part of RTÉ's Other Voices programme last night (Thursday).

The episode, which was the final one of the second ‘Courage’ series, was filmed recently in the Muckross House Drawing Room and featured Ireland’s best known and most loved alternative rock band Bell X1 joined by Dowry Strings.

“We were delighted to welcome the Other Voices production team and the talented performers Bell X1 and Dowry Strings to Muckross House for a magical show,” the Trustees of Muckross House General Manager Denis Reidy said. “It was an honour to host the second season finale of Other Voices ‘Courage’ and open up our beautiful Drawing Room with a special performance to everyone at home.”

Other Voices founder and director Philip King added that they are delighted to present this second season of Other Voices ‘Courage’ as part of the Government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This is about bringing people together through music, and recognising the essential and powerful contribution that artists continue to make to our lives. The Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht has played a leading and imaginative role in making it possible for our artists and crews to work together to create and present Other Voices ‘Courage’.” Anyone who missed it can catch it on the RTÉ Player.

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
