Since 2005, Clare Arts Office has proudly produced the Riches of Clare free lunchtime Ennis. Originally coordinated by Liam and Finola Ryan, the series is coordinated annually now by our enigmatic Fear an Tí, Mike Butler.

The concerts normally begin to coincide with the Fleadh Nua and continue every lunchtime through June and July in The Sancturary, Cruises Bar, Ennis culminating at the Feakle Festival in August annually.

Due to COVID 19 the last series took place in 2019.

We are grateful to photographer John O’Neill and Peter Laban who, over the years, have captured some gorgeous images of the concert series.

Two CD recordings of the concert series were made to mark the 5th and 10th anniversary of the concerts. Volume 1 is no longer available but copies of Volume 2 are available free of charge: to receive a copy contact arts@clarecoco.ie.
