WELCOME TO THE FANORE WEBSITE

RIP: JOHN JOE SCANLON

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the death of one of Fanore’s finest musicians: after a long illness, John Joe Scanlon passed away at Ennistymon Community Hospital on Monday, 19 November.

John Joe was well-known in the world of traditional music, in Clare and far beyond: his songs, whistle-playing and lilting were appreciated by many, and his modest, unassuming personality made him much loved by those who knew him.

Because of his presence, our songnights were always special occasions.
Fanore will not be the same without him. May he rest in peace.

John Joe Scanlon
 

 

VILLAGE OF MY CHILDHOOD (VIDEO)

To mark the first ten years of Fanore Songnights, we have produced this video of ‘Village of my Childhood’, a song about Fanore written by Patsy Carrucan and Willem Verhulst.

The song is sung by Patsy and the video contains many images of our lovely village, its townlands and the rugged beauty of the Burren landscape along the Wild Atlantic Way.

The video was recorded by Fanore-based German film producer Aribert Weis and edited by Cornelia Zaluskowski.

We hope you will enjoy it:
