Valentines’ weekend in Swinford

ShanleyMcGettigan

Wondering how to start your St. Valentines weekend…………

Swinford Cultural Centre is happy to announce a great pairing for Friday 13th February, featuring two of the finest musicians to come from Leitrim over the past forty years Eleanor Shanley and Charlie McGettigan.
Eleanor Shanley has played with De Danann and with some of Irelands greatest musicians Ronnie Drew and Christy Moore and has a very impressive collection of music in her own right.
Charlie McGettigan, a Donegal man but residing in Leitrim for some time is a Eurovision winner with “Rock ‘n’ Roll Kids”. He has written songs that have been recorded by every major Irish artist of the last 40 years.
It promises to be a very entertaining night of music with doors open at 7 and the concert beginning at 8. Tickets are available at €15 from The Gateway Hotel, Swinford.
