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.

Interview with Dublin City FM

I was interviewed last night by Peter Grogan of Dublin City FM for his Saturday lunchtime programme 'It's All in the Song'. We talked about the development of the club, the artists who played there and the excitement of the Irish musical context of the time. As part of the programme he played three tracks from the album one each by Al O'Donnell, Sonny Condell and Luke Kelly.
The programme will be broadcast from 12 noon to 1pm tomorrow, Saturday 14th November. It can be played live on-line from the Dublin City FM web site.
