Some former members travelled from far afield to reunite and rekindle old musical friendships with current members of the group. It was magical to see the older members of the group playing with some of the younger members. It truly was music for the generations.
The programme’s presenter, Kieran Hanrahan of RTE, complimented the group for the very high quality of the musical talent and the efforts of the tutors and teachers at passing on the musical heritage to future generations of young musicians.
Bofield CCE’s links to the Leeds Branch of Comhaltas were highlighted as well as to the County Clare Tulla Ceilí Band.
