Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin is delighted to launch Sunday Sessions at the Grand Central, a weekly night of traditional music as part of a new partnership with The Grand Central Bar.

Every Sunday from 9pm, the Grand Central Bar will host an open Irish traditional music session, led by the Magee Traditional Music Society and local musicians.

The project is part of an initiative by Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin to engage the business community in the creation of a Gaeltacht Quarter in the city.

Arts Director, Eibhlín Ní Dhochartaigh said, ‘Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin is a natural hub for Irish language and traditional arts, but our goal is to encourage the development of Gaelic culture on a citywide level, and the involvement of the business community is vital to this.’

Rachael Parkes, owner of the Grand Central Bar said: ‘We enjoyed some fantastic traditional music sessions in the bar during the Fleadh, and spotted the potential for having something on a regular basis.’

‘This project gives us the opportunity to develop new audiences and cements our identity as an authentic Irish pub.’

All are welcome to Sunday Sessions, at the Grand Central Bar, every Sunday from 9pm.
