O’Carolan Harp Festival
The O'Carolan Harp and Traditional Music Festival is held in Keadue, County Roscommon every August Bank Holiday.
The Festival was started in Keadue in 1978, to commemorate the famous Harper Turlough O'Carolan who lived in the area and is buried beside Keadue. Keadue is a small village of 200 people located on the shores of Lough Meelagh at the foot of the Arigna Mountains. The Festival includes Concerts, Ceili, Tuition on the Harp, Set Dancing, Harp Recitals and a Harp Competition sponsored every year since we began by local business Arigna Fuels Ltd .
