The Craiceann Summerschool 2021 is cancelled due the Covid 19 pandemic

It is with great regret that we have to cancel the Craiceann Bodhrán Summerschool for 2021.

This is the second year in a row that we have taken this decision because of the Covid 19 pandemic.

Even though it looks as if 2021 will be the year when incredible scientific developments and global social solidarity may return our world to some sort of normality, it is impossible to believe that this will occur in time to permit our event to safely take place.

Hopefully, by the end of 2021 we will have enough certainty to be able to start planning for Craiceann 2022.

We apologise for having to cancel for a second year, but you will understand that no other action was possible.

We will once again miss seeing you on Inis Oírr, and hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well in these uniquely dangerous and stressful times.

From Mícheál, David, Rolf, and Gary can we send you our thoughts and best wishes until we meet up again.

If you have already booked your accomodation for Craiceann 2021, please contact your hosts to let them know you are not coming. Thanks!
