Despite the disappointment we all feel about the cancellation of our summer school this year, Coiste Scoil Acla is delighted to announce that we will move online for the week beginning on Monday 27th July!

 We will have tutorials each day at 11am and 3pm in intermediate tin whistle, concertina, harp, uileann pipes, flute, banjo, accordion and fiddle from some of our local tutors along with some singing and dancing – notes can be downloaded and printed out for each day below.

We will run competitions all week for some Scoil Acla goodie bags and our traditional Hata Acla competition.

Each evening at 7pm we will look back at Scoil Acla through the years – Súil Siar with us – you may spot someone you know!

On Saturday 1st August we will mark 35 years of Scoil Acla with a “mini-Aeraíocht” and the launch of Mary J Murphy’s book “Achill Painters” by John “Twin” McNamara, Anne Burke & special guest John F. Deane!
