Tom McCarthy Concert

On Friday May 25th, a concert to celebrate the music of Tom McCarthy (1929-2000), master piper, concertina and whistle player, will take place at The Armada Hotel, Spanish Point, Miltown Malbay at 8-30pm.  

Originally from Kilmihil, Co. Clare, Tom was a much loved and respected musician who returned to Ireland to live in Miltown Malbay after spending forty years in London. He played all over Ireland, the U.K., Europe, Australia and the U.S. as well as accompanying films, theatre and ballet. A fine, knowledgeable musician, he was always most generous with his time and expertise and is very much missed on the Irish Music scene. 

Among the artists performing at the concert, are:

The McCarthy Family  (Bernadette, Jacqueline, Marion and Tommy), Conor Keane, Mary Bergin, Alec Finn, John Carty, Michael Tubridy, Peadar O’Loughlin, Jacky Daly. It will be introduced by Ciaran Mac Mathuna. 

Tickets can be obtained from Hurleys of Miltown Malbay, Gleesons of Coore, Custy’s and The Knotted Chord, Ennis and at the door. All proceeds will go to the Clare 250 Cancer Centre.
