“Where traditions come alive”

Cnoc na Gaoithe (Windswept Hill), the Tulla Comhaltas Cultural Centre’s mission is to promote, preserve and showcase the rich Irish traditions and culture of Tulla and the East Clare area.

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

Some great musicians from East Clare here, including P. Joe Hayes and Vincent Griffin, to name but a few and I can also see the great Robbie McMahon dancing a set. Filmed in 1978 in Spancil Hill, on the eve of St John's Day, for an RTÉ programme by Ciarán Mac Mathúna, 'The Fires of St John's Eve,' which was broadcast on the 19th June 1979.
