Giving some love: The Killarney Village Band

Right in the center of Killarney, and sometimes inside Grogan’s Pub, you have the chance to hear the Killarney Village Band.  A trio of talented young musicians who play traditional Irish songs that will make you tap your feet, and some may get up and dance a jig.  I stop and watch this group whenever I can catch them in BGW’s Irish hamlet.

I haven’t met a single person that did not appreciate the talents of these three.  My youngest son (7) loves to get up and dance to the band.  I look forward to them on every trip, be it outside or in the pub (actually, I prefer pub shows).  Next time you are walking through Killarney and you hear a distant calling, you know just what to do, stop and give a listen to the Killarney Village Band!
