The Góilín Traditional Singer's Club has been in existence for over 38 years.  The Club was founded by Tim Dennehy and his brother-in-law Donal de Barra to give a platform for people who like to sing and listen to traditional Irish songs and singing.

As our Motto says: "there is no standard set", not in the singing anyway.  We set a very high standard in listening.  The rule of the club is: if someone is singing, reciting or performing in any way, total attention is given to the performance. Experience over the years has taught us that it does't work any other way.

We do not have a ban on musical instruments but as it's a Singers' club, if you want to play we prefer that you also sing. Anyone who has an interest in listening to or performing songs will find that they are "as welcome as the flowers in May".

We meet regularly every Friday night (with some exceptions) and break for the summer.  The current schedule can be found on our home page.  We expect everyone who attends to contribute to the "box" when it goes around.  A minimum contribution of €3.00 is expected.  Note: everyone, including the organisers contribute €3.00.

The Góilín is celebrating 35 years of singing this year!
