Kincora Traditional Weekend will take place in the twin towns of Killaloe and Ballina on the banks of the river Shannon. Over the three days and nights we will offer a comprehensive program of concerts, workshops, traditional music and singing sessions in various venues in both towns. The weekend itself takes its name from the ‘Palace of Kincora’ which was formerly situated on the green in Killaloe and served as the home of High King of Ireland Brian Ború.
