Miltown Malbay’s most significant economic and cultural event has been cancelled for 2020.

Organisers of Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy confirmed to The Clare Echo on Wednesday morning that it would not be taking place this summer.

Businesses in Miltown Malbay have annually emphasised the importance of the summer school with some pubs admitting they would find it difficult to keep their doors open if it were not for the summer school.

Scheduled to take place from Saturday July 4th to Sunday July 12th, organisers had been reviewing “the evolving health crisis and considering various ways in which the 48th summer school might be run safely and successfully” before making their decision.

Concern had been expressed over the health and safety of participants, visitors, local communities and the general public were the 48th Willie Clancy Summer School go ahead. “Taking into account the current situation and restrictions, the prevailing uncertainties, and the advice of the HSE, it has been decided, regretfully, that the summer school programme will not run in 2020,” a spokesperson confirmed.

2020’s programme will remain on the official website of the summer school and is intended to form the basis of the 2021 programme.

Miltown’s best-known uileann piper, Willie Clancy is commemorated in the summer school which has been running since just after his death in 1973. The idea was initiated by Clancy himself, and implemented within six months by teacher Muiris Ó Rócháin in collaboration with CCE’s timire ceoil Séamus Mac Mathúna and local musicians Martin Talty, Paddy Joe McMahon and Junior Crehan.

Traditional Music in Clare Many people in County Clare, as children, are brought into Custy’s Traditional Irish Music shop to choose their first instrument. For some it may be a tin whistle, a fiddle or perhaps an accordion.
Most people start off with the tin whistle as it is cheaper and most primary schools in Clare teach this as a subject. Some people then like to progress onto more difficult instruments, concertinas, fiddles, or even flutes.

County Clare has been known as the home of Traditional music, this due to the annual calendar of festivals throughout the county. The traditional music season starts in Clare in february and goes on until end of october. It kicks off with The Russell Memorial Weekend in Doolin. This festival is just the first piece in a symphony of festivals that are to be put on in various towns around the county, from Feakle to Kilfenora to Kilkishen.
Traditional Music in Clare
Some of these festivals include the Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy, which is a week-long summer school in traditional music and set dance held annually at Miltown Malbay, at the start of July.
Another is the Crotty Galvin Weekend, this is a wonderful weekend in Moyasta to celebrate the legacy of three amazing musicians Ellen Nell Galvin, PJ Crotty and Peadar Crotty.
This weekend is held annually at the start of September. For musicians and music enthusiasts, the year is anything but boring in Co. Clare.

For the weekends that have no festivals on, many pubs throughout the county have weekly or even daily sessions. Some of these pubs are very famous for their sessions, with pubs such as O’Connor’s pub in Doolin, Friel’s in Miltown Malbay or Crotty’s bar in Kilrush being particularly popular.
Speaking to the manager of Friel’s in Miltown Malbay, he said that the love of traditional music is still strong in West Clare, and indeed throughout the world. His business has greatly benefited from this and continues to do so to this day.
Traditional Music in Clare
“Miltown Malbay is blessed with many talented musicians so we would have a lot of local musicians playing every weekend however we would also get some great musicians coming from all parts of Ireland for a few nights throughout the year as they love to travel to Miltown because of its famous tradition with Irish music and because Friel’s is famous for traditional music we get a lot of tourists coming in to play too throughout the year to play with some of their favorite musicians. There is a great mix, no night is ever the same.”

Despite Irish language and culture fading away, according to the media, it is obvious that there is still a strong hunger for traditional music.

Milltown Malbay

Town in Munster, Ireland

Milltown Malbay[2] (Irish: Sráid na Cathrach, meaning 'street of the stone ringfort'), also Miltown Malbay, is a town in the west of County Clare, Ireland, near Spanish Point. The population was 829 at the 2016 Census.[1]

Name[edit]

There is a townland on the southern edge of the town called Poulawillin or Pollawillin (from Irish: Poll a' Mhuillinn, meaning 'hole/pool of the mill'). There is evidence that this name was once applied to the town – for example, in the Parish Namebook of the Ordnance Survey (1839) there is a reference to "Baile an Mhuillinn anciently Poll a’ Mhuillinn, Milltown Malbay".[2]

Malbay is the name of the bay to the west of Milltown. The name Malbay is thought to come from the Irish meall-bhaigh, which roughly means "treacherous coast". It could also stem from the legend of the witch "Mal" who was drowned in the bay by Fionn mac Cumhaill.[3]

History[edit]

The town has only existed since about 1800 but grew rapidly: by 1821 it had a population of 600. During the Great Famine (1844 - 1848) many farmers were evicted by the unpopular landlord Moroney. In the years after the famine the (Protestant) Moroney family went on with rack renting and evictions. At one time the population had enough and started a boycott. The government did not like that and imprisoned all pub-owners and shopkeepers who refused to serve the family or their servant. So at the end of 1888 most pub-owners and shopkeepers were in jail.[3]

In the lead up to the Irish War of Independence there were a number of incidents in Milltown Malbay. On 14 April 1920 the local population were celebrating the release of hunger strikers from Mountjoy Prison. It turned into the Shooting at Canada Cross when members of the Royal Irish Constabulary and the Royal Highland Infantry Regiment fired into the crowd wounding seven and killing three: Volunteer John O’Loughlan and two civilians Thomas O’Leary and Patrick Hennessy.

Milltown Malbay was also the site of the Rineen Ambush, which took place near Rineen on the main road to Lahinch and Ennistymon. On 22 September 1920, a RIC tender was ambushed there by the Mid-Clare Brigade of the IRA mainly in retaliation for the killing of Martin Devitt at Crow's Bridge earlier in the year. Six policemen were killed in the ambush. In reprisal for the Rineen Ambush, the Black & Tans ran amok in Ennistymon, Lahinch and Milltown Malbay killing six people and burning 26 buildings, including Ennistymon and Lahinch Townhalls.

The Atlantic Hotel was one of the victims of the War of Independence. Owned by the Moroney family and mainly visited by English gentry it had no future and closed down around 1925.[5] Milltown Malbay was served by the West Clare Railway, which operated from the 2 July 1887 and finally closed on 1 February 1961.[6]

Things to do in Miltown Malbay (and nearby)

2. Suck down some ocean air at Whitestrand Beach

Time for some fresh sea air to clear your head, and where better than Whitestrand (not to be confused with White Strand Beach near Doonbeg).

It’s a 3-minute drive from Miltown MalBay and has Blue Flag waters, a grey sandy beach and pebbly shoreline (there’s more sand at low tide). 

If you prefer, jump into the natural swimming pool nearby known as Kerin’s Hole. Accessed by steps from the headland, it has a dive platform and ladder (ALWAYS be careful when entering the water).

3. Take a spin out to Spanish Point (5-minute drive)

spanish point

Named after the Spanish Armada ships that were wrecked nearby in 1588, Spanish Point is a popular tourist destination.

Check out the sandy beach, top surfing and wonderful scenic hikes along the Wild Atlantic Way. The Armada Hotel stands on the former site of “the biggest hotel in the British Isles” built in 1810.

It’s a lovely area to spend a summer’s day. Spanish Point is also the place to tee off on one of Ireland’s oldest golf courses. 

There’s plenty of things to do in Spanish Point (there’s lots of great accommodation in Spanish Point, too!).

4. Hit the water in Lahinch (13-minute drive)

Lahinch village

Lahinch is a large surfing town and resort in West Clare which is always buzzing in summer. The big attraction is its stunning 2km long golden sandy beach which is just perfect for a ramble with the sound of the waves and gulls for company.

Known as a world-class surf centre, Lahinch Beach has several surf schools and equipment rentals but it caters for other watersports such as kite-surfing and sailing.

Go fishing, swimming and snorkelling or just treat yourself to an ice cream and a walk along the promenade.

We promised there was plenty to see and do from your base in Miltown Malbay and there’s more! Head south along the coast to Kilkee, another pretty beach town with a curving mile-long sandy beach on Moore Bay.

The sheltered cove is protected by the Duggerna Rocks and is a lovely spot for a swim but if you’re looking for a good walk, Kilkee Cliff Walk is ideal.

Starting from the Pollock Holes (natural tidal rock pools) at the west end of town, the loop walk is 18km long and takes 4-5 hours to complete.

6. Followed by a ramble at the Bridges of Ross

A little further southwest is the natural attraction known as the Bridges of Ross. Despite its plural name, it’s actually a single natural sea arch.

Originally there were three arches (imagine that!) but sea erosion got to work and two collapsed, so now we’re lucky to have just the one!

There’s a free car park and a path around the cliff which you need to follow along until you spot the Bridges of Ross. The broad arch is topped by a grassy plateau for enjoying a walk above the turbulent waves. 

7. And then a spin out to Loop Head

Part of the Wild Atlantic Way, the Loop Head Drive offers a breathtaking jaunt around the Loop Head Peninsula. You might not have time to do the whole 90km, but don’t miss Loop Head Lighthouse, built in 1854.

The Lighthouse-keeper’s Cottage has interactive exhibits and you can take a guided tour up the lighthouse for stunning views of the Shannon Estuary, Blasket Islands and Twelve Pins in Connemara.

Other Loop Head highlights include Diarmuid and Gráinne’s Rock, dolphins, seals, whales and the occasional sea stack. It’s awesome!
