Cultúrlann Sweeney Kilkee presents Cormac Begley in concert.
Cormac Begley is one of Irelands best known concertina players and he will be accompanied on the night by Rushad Eggleston who is considered one of the very best cellist of our time. Together they are embarking on a nationwide tour this October. Catch them when they visit Kilkee.
