Cork International Folk Dance Festival Open Air
Performance At The Market Square Photo Michael Hussey

The sun came to Youghal and with it a hugely entertaining performance of open-air music, song and dance. Some of the best perform-
ers in the Cork International Folk Festival brought with it colour and magic to the East Cork town, including special guest star ’Sefirah’
a belly dancer with the Hungarian Group who performed a dance from the Middle East. Members of the Polish and Hungarian folk
dance contingents, along with the Owenabue Valley Traditional Group, Carrigaline kept the large group of locals and tourists alike
enthralled for over two hours. Cork’s 96 & 103FM were on site for a ’live link’ as one of the main sponsors of the Festival. Yes, it’s been
a long wait but summer has truly finally arrived! The Cork International Folk Dance Festival continues until 22nd July. For further

The band were formed in 1979 and from their base in Cork
travelled far and wide. It is fair to say that by the time Galleon
retired in 2002 the band had made a significant contribution to
the entertainment scene from Cork to New York, and many
places in between. Regular tours of Britain, Europe, Canada
and the United States ensued but the lads never lost touch with
their enthusiastic fan base in Ireland.
Galleon was founded by 5 guys who worked together in a hos-
pital in Cork. They found that gigging was the perfect antidote
to the demands of their daily work and throughout their 23
years on the road there were very few changes in personel
