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.

Great to see in the figures gathered by Irish Music Magazine that the CD was the number one best-seller last month in McQuaid's Music Shop in Nenagh, Tipperary. Judging by it's web site, McQuaid's looks like a excellent music shop with an extensive range of musical instruments as well as CDs. Nice to know that such shops are thriving around the country.

In another sign of the fine musical tastes in Tipperary, Noel Fahy has also being playing tracks from the CD on his programme 'The Crooked Road' on Tipperary Midwest Radio.

Of course, Tipperary has a close link to the album anyway as the legendary blues singer, Red Peters, was born in Tipperary town and features on four tracks.
