Cup of Tae Festival

The 2023 Cup of Tae festival will take place from Friday April 28th – Monday 1st May

The festival honours legendary fiddle player John ‘The Tae’ Gallagher who was born in West End, Ardara in 1923, with live traditional music, masterclasses and performances right across the lively pubs, bars and cultural locations in the town.

This year we’re delighted to honour Donna Harkin, one of the most respected and committed teachers and accordion players in the country, who will conduct the beginners and moderate classes on Fidil. For the full run down of events see the Festival Programme.
