Drunken Sailor Comhltas na Mara

It's time to clamber up the gang plank once again as the Rosses Point Shanty crew cast off plans for the 2015 festival with a fundraising concert. Leading the way on this year's passage to the festivities are able-bodied singers from the locality.. Doors open at 9pm and tickets are priced at €5. Everyone is welcome. Money raised on the night goes towards setting up Rosses Point's international shanty festival, which is being held this year from June 19th to June 21st.

The shanty weekend draws big crowds to the village lured by an international line-up of performers. This year will be no different with groups coming from Norway,The AalandIslands, Germany UK and Netherlands.More details on the fundraising night!

The festival supports the work of the RNLI. A good turnout at the Yacht Club will be a major help in making the 2015 festival another roaring success.

Tickets can be bought on the door or from any of the shanty singers.

Join us in as we embark on our sixth International Sea Shanty Festival, join in the fun, meet old and new friends, and enjoy the singing with Shanty Groups from home and abroad.
