Organiser Féile John Dwyer

Organiser of Celebrate Féile John Dwyer with a tribute concert to the man himself

We are delighted to be back live again this year with two concerts in St. Patrick’s Gateway Centre. On Friday 24th September we will celebrate the life and music of John Dwyer with a concert showcasing his repertoire of music. Saturday 25th September will see Mairtín O’Connor, Cathal Hayden &Seamie O’Dowd take to the stage for a performance that is sure to be one to remember!

Each concert will be covid compliant and will require proof of vaccination for admission.

A variety of instrument and song workshops will take place online on Saturday 25th September featuring a top class line up of tutors. This year, we will also be holding two other very special events include a workshop with Neill Byrne specialising on the specific repertoire of John Dwyer and an Irish language conversation circle with Aidan Barrett.

Established in 2012, Féile John Dwyer celebrates the life of the great Cork musician who was a local hero and huge musical influence in the South East for much of his life. John passed away in August 2020, but up until that time, he was a central figure at the festival annually.

The festival is run by a voluntary committee which includes three local musicians Jimmy O’Brien Moran, Edel Fox and Neill Byrne.
