Joe Mooney Summer School

  • Drumshanbo Co. Leitrim Ireland (map)

Rónán provides fiddle tuition from 10:00am - 1:00pm from Monday to Saturday of the Joe Mooney Summer School (Round up class on Sat ends at 12:00pm).  This is a fantastic week for those interested in learning about the Leitrim / North Connacht fiddle style to learn bowing techniques, phrasing and settings of tunes from the rich repertoire and heritage of this area.  I look forward to seeing you there!


Every July Drumshanbo plays host to the award winning Joe Mooney Summer School. This is a week long traditional festival of Irish music, song and dance named after the man who did so much to promote the cause of Leitrim, the traditional arts and his beloved town.

Rónán also teaches a Sean-Nós Dance class from 3:30pm to 6:30pm on Friday 26th of July.  This class starts off with Rónán’s Alphabet of steps and progresses to Step Creation, after which he teaches some of his advanced techniques and steps.  This class will enrich those with an interest in Sean-Nós Dance and build on budding dancers knowledge and skills.  It is an enjoyable 3 hours of dance which will bring interested dancers on a journey towards enpowering them to create and build interesting rhythms and evolve routines which they can then apply to their dancing.
