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.

"Foxrock Folk Club Sells Out the Pavilion!"

The FFC 40th Anniversary Concert at the Pavilion Theatre on Sunday is now completely sold out and there is a waiting list for any returns. So hope you all have your tickets for the music and arts event of the year. Many thanks to blog readers and others who have supported the idea and the show.
For those who haven't got tickets - sorry! But, as 'two to a seat' and hanging out of windows is no longer allowed, nothing can be done. However, it looks as if RTE Radio will be recording the show for broadcast in July, so there should be a chance to listen in later.
