Cornelscourt Parish Hall
The Location of Foxrock Folk Club


As Luke Kelly remarked when he played the club in December 1972, a folk club in the suburb of Foxrock was a somewhat unlikely combination. Probably even more unlikely was the fact it was organised and run by teenagers and managed to attract to Foxrock some of the biggest names on the Irish music scene (see Folk Club History & "Local and Visiting Artists").

The aim of the Foxrock Folk Club Project is to (1) research the history of the club (2) develop a club archive and (3) create a space in which people who played at the club or attended some of the sessions can share their memories of what was an unique musical and cultural experience.

More Additions to the Artists Playing on the 14th June

Rock Fox has been playing, arranging and composing jazz since the 1960s and for many years he was joint leader of one of the finest traditional jazz bands in Ireland, The Butler Fox Jazz Band.
The bands' sessions at the club were always very well received by audience and were appreciated as much for Rock's laconic and informative introductions to the tunes, as well as the very fine music played by the band.

Jerry Doyle, like Johnny Norris a guitarist with the blues band Dirty Dozens, will be playing with Johnny at the concert.


  1. Bring on the 14th June and lets all meet up.
