Scully's Rambling House - Culture Night 2015


As part of Culture Night 2015, Scully's bar was turned into a Rambling House, on Friday the 18th of September.   Our Fear an tí and Bean an tí ()'Man of the house' and 'woman of the house') ran the proceedings introducing a selection of Set dancers, Brush dancers, Singers of all ages and styles, Recitations and Poetry, along with a generous sprinkling of Sliabh Luachra music that forms part of every event in Scully's bar.

Before the advent of Radio,T.V.and print media the Rambling House was an important and widespread feature of country life.  The Rambling House was a private dwelling where members of small communities met to socialize, to entertain one another and to be entertained.  Attendance at such gatherings was often described as 'roving'.

Culture Night 2015


Scully's bar will be transforming into a Rambling House, complete with fear an tí and bean an tí, for this years culture night.  An initiative run throughout the country, culture night celebrates culture, creativity and the arts.  Scully's Rambling House kicks off at 8pm, on Friday the 18th of September; with plenty of music, singing, dancing, poetry and a bit of drama.  There will be an open mic at the end of the proceedings for anyone who would like to take part.  A raffle will be run also to raise much needed funds for Scullysfest 2016.
