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

Cnoc na Gaoithe

With the shortest day of the year coming to a close and 2018 almost over we are grateful for another great year at Cnoc na Gaoithe.
In January we were successful in receiving funding from the Town & Village Renewal Scheme 2018 to provide fabulous accommodation on the first floor of Cnoc na Gaoithe. Matching funding was generously donated by the J.P. McManus Benevolent Fund. The accommodation was opened in May 2018.
Ceoltóirí Chnoc na Gaoithe had a very successful visit to China in March to celebrate Irish week and St.Patricks Day.
We held a very successful festival, Féile Chnoc na Gaoithe in May.
June saw our Senior Céilí Band take the County title at Fleadh Cheoil an Chláir, along with three sets advancing to Fleadh Cheoil na Mumhan which was held in Ennis in June. The Cnoc na Gaoithe Céilí Band took the Munster Senior Céilí Band Title for the 2nd year in a row!
Our under 12 ladies set qualified to the All Ireland Fleadh in Drogheda.
July and August saw a very successful summer seisiun season at Cnoc na Gaoithe, following which we all headed to Drogheda for Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann where our under 12 ladies set won the All Ireland title and our Senior Céilí Band took the bronze medals. In July we hosted a music group from France, Cnoc na Gaoithe Seisiún group with set dancers will visit France on the return leg of the exchange in August 2019.
September saw our classes resuming and in October we were successful in our application for funding from the Town & Village Renewal Scheme 2019, to build a tea room to cater for visiting groups. We held a hugely successful Students Christmas Concert on 15th December and to finish off 2018 on a high note Ceoltóirí Chnoc na Gaoithe, who have represented Ireland at Embassy functions in China for the past 3 years, have been invited to South Africa for Irish week in 2019 to entertain guests of the Irish Embassy in Pretoria, Johannesburg and Capetown!
We are very grateful to everyone who supported us in 2018. We wish you all a very happy Christmas and the very best of everything in 2019.
Míle buíochas dóibh go léir.
