About this event

The Octoberseis History.

Beginning in 2005, the OctoberSeis started as a way for the O’Neill family of Athy, Co. Kildare to pay tribute to their father Joe O’Neill, a gifted musician and dedicated band leader of the Stardust Orchestra which brought his particular brand of music to almost every dance venue in Ireland from the early 1940’s to the 1960’s.

Starting in Naas, this weekend of Music and entertainment brought together all members of the O’Neill Family ( both children and Grandchildren of Joe) to raise money for local charities and worthy organizations. The festival moves every year to an area where members of the O’Neill family live or have strong connections.

From that first seis in Naas 2005 the music has traveled to Cavan, Tewkesbury (UK), New York Manchester and Kildare. In 2010 the Octoberseis came to Westport where over €4,000 was raised for RockRose House. The Seis returned to Westport on 2016 where money was raised for the Aughagower Community Development and we are delighted to say that this years seis is back in Westport where all funds are once again going to the Aughagower Community Council.

This Years Charity.

The Aughagower Community Council are at the heart of the the community organizing wonderful events in and around the village. From Dances to Bingo Nights, Halloween Fancy Dress Parties to Christmas events for children they never fail to bring the community together. They have also ensured that the community hall is maintained and available for everyone.

One of their finest achievements is the building of a community playground.

This years Octoberseis will take place on Campbell's Bar at the foot of Croac Patrick on Saturday 23rd of October. Tickets will be €10 each and due to restrictions there will be a limited number of tickets available.
