Classes resume for Term Two
The Pipers Club evening classes restart on Monday 10 January in Coláiste Chaitríona. Twelve class nights are scheduled up to the Easter break, of which at least one will be in a session format, followed by Term Three with seven classes, of which three will be sessions. There will also be special events such as the Fonn Friday concerts (one a month from January to May), two events in February in association with the local Council, and, we hope, some form of annual concert, though probably a month or two after the usual St Patrick’s weekend. We also hope to resume operations as a London College of Music examination centre once a small number of issues relating to 2020 exam bookings are resolved.

Fonn Friday concerts are back!
Due to the current public health situation and the limited capacity of the Áras auditorium, the Pipers Club has decided to keep its popular free concert series, Fonn Friday, online for at least the first couple of months. The 2022 opener, this Friday, features two artists long associated with the Club: our former student and tutor Méabh Smyth, current holder of the prestigious Fiddler of London title, and Keady’s master of satirical song Sean Mone. Return to this page at or after 8pm on Friday to watch!
Next Fonn Friday dates: 11 February, 25 March, 29 April, 13 May.
