Dr Galligan Weekend

Saturday, March 28th, 2009

This weekend the Comhaltas Ceolteoiri Eireann have organised a memorial weekend for Doctor Brian Galligan, from Kilnaleck, one of the founding members of the organisation and a great patron of Irish music and culture. Last night the weekend was launched in The Farnham Arms Hotel in Cavan; tonight there’s a big traditional Irish Concert in Crover House Hotel; and tomorrow there’s mass here in Kilnaleck at 11 o’clock, unveiling of a memorial stone at 2 o’clock, and great trad sessions in every pub in the town after that.

Lots of Dr Galligan’s family were in the Farnham last night; here’s three generations – his son Seamus, grandson Brian and great-grandson Darragh (commonly known as Brian Doc, Seamus Doc and Darragh Doc ;-) )
