She sucks the small birds’ eggs to make her voice clear
And the more she sings cuckoo, the summer draws near’

‘Me Oul Flower….’

Thursday 3rd May – Abbey Tavern – 9 pm – adm €4

“Where have all the flowers gone”, you may ask.
Well if you want to find out just come along to Howth Singing Circle on Thursday 3rd of May for a session entitled “Me Oul Flower” hosted by Tony Fitzpatrick and Brendan Kennedy.
Sweet Daffodil Mulligan is bound to be there, if we can shift her off the banks of primroses where she goes to pick a daisy a day.
There will be banks of red roses all the way from Allendale to Tralee, and you may find bread or a briar mixed in with a rose somewhere along the way.
There may be flowers from Magherally or Finae, tulips from Amsterdam and we may even have an edelweiss.

If you’re going to the Howth Singing Circle be sure to bring a Bright Blue Rose from Both sides the Tweed or a Whatever Happened from Dick Gaughan.
(Tony Fitzpatrick)

Special Weekend

HSC welcomes guests from two UK folk clubs with two events this weekend.

On Saturday afternoon, 24 March from 3-4pm we are singing for St Francis Hospice in Sutton Methodist Church, accompanied by guests from the Grand Union Folk Club, Sileby, Leicestershire and the Tigerfolk Traditional Folk Club, Long Eaton, Derbyshire.

On Sunday morning, 25 March starting at 11 o’clock sharp in the foyer of the Liberty Hall Auditorium on Eden Quay, we commence an Historical Walking and Singing Tour along the quays, recalling, in particular, the 1913 Lockout, emigration, women’s struggles, seafaring and dock working. The walk concludes at the Larkin Monument in O’Connell Street.

You are welcome to join us for both or either event
