Granary hosts first Cahir Culture Night

Cahir’s first culture night was a great success. Held at the Craft Granary, the night was billed as “Eat drink and be crafty” and was a real treat for all who attended.

Cahir’s first culture night was a great success. Held at the Craft Granary, the night was billed as “Eat drink and be crafty” and was a real treat for all who attended.

To eat and drink there was food and beverages by local producers. To be crafty there were craft demonstrations by Ber O’Donnell (card making) and Lesley Lynch (weaving).

The upstairs gallery housed a stunning exhibition by our arch rivals Kilkenny Crafters.

To entertain the culture vultures, there were the dulcet violin tones of internationally acclaimed violin player Ali Price.

Also milling about regaling everyone with his GAA tales was Eddie Moroney (aka Effin Eddie). Eddie became famous when his commentary of a match between Aherlow and Eire Og Nenagh turned into an internet sensation around the world. This event is a testament to how a community can pull together to provide a free event to all for culture night. Let’s hope it becomes a yearly event.
