Seana Haughney explains what MySligo means to her, “Traditional Irish music has been the soundtrack of my life since I was a small child. It’s the heartbeat of South Sligo. This is #MySligo”.
Seána Haughey knows traditional music from every aspect – as a listener, a tin whistle player, a music teacher and a festival organiser. She has been involved with the South Sligo Summer School in one capacity or another since its inception in 1987. Seána is a national school principal in South Sligo. This video was filmed at Murphy’s Hotel in Tubbercurry during one of their regular Sunday sessions. Thank you to the local, talented musicians.
