Rhythm & Stick will play at Lavey GAA Summer Carnival on Saturday June 15

‘Triple bill of entertainment’ for Lavey

Following on from the success of last year, Lavey GAA Summer Carnival returns this weekend on June 14, 15 and 16.

Again Lavey GAA Summer Carnival has brought together some of Ireland’s top entertainers to perform over the entire weekend.

The Carnival’s PR officer Owen McConnon detailed what’s in store for the weekend.

On Friday June 14 the carnival will get under way with new “up and coming country star” Gavin Gribben from county Down, who Owen said has built up a big following all over Ireland.

Gavin Gribben will be followed on stage by “one of the biggest acts in Ireland” right now the “incredible” Derek Ryan.

“Singer songwriter Derek is packing dance halls, arenas and festivals with his unique country music,” said Owen.

Saturday June 15 will see the return of the “ever-popular” Rhythm & Sticks.

“At last year’s carnival, this band proved to be one of the most entertaining acts over the entire weekend,” Owen remembered, adding that those planning to attend should “expect more of the same on Saturday night.”

“Rhythm and Sticks will be followed the wonder act that is Johnny Brady.”

“Johnny and the band have a massive fan base all over the country and abroad,” Owen said, adding that he is aware of fans from Scotland and England who will be traveling to Virginia on Saturday night to hear and watch Johnny perform all of his hits.

Sunday night will bring Lavey Summer Carnival 2024 to a close, which Owen said will be “a feast for all music lovers” featuring a “triple bill of entertainment.”

First on stage is “country queen” Cliona Hagan, whom Owen said is regarded as “an international singing star.”

“Her distinctive singing voice has been turning out the hits since the beginning of her career,” he said.

Cliona Hagan will be followed by Offaly based Ruaile Buaile performing their modern day, traditional, pop and folk music.

“They too have a solid fan base all over Ireland.”

Finishing off the weekend is the group that everyone is talking about right now according to Owen. Cavan’s Highstool Prophets, featuring Lavey’s Ptrick Tierney are sure to fill the festival.

“Since their rise to fame, they have been packing houses everywhere they play,” Owen commented.

The show takes place in Virginia Show Centre (A82 A9X2), Virginia, Co. Cavan.
