Willie Keane was Doonbeg’s best known personality and a great exponent of traditional dancing.
He came to prominence with the Mullagh Set which won numerous competitions throughout Ireland. After frequent appearances on TV, he toured the U.S. with Clare’s best-known traditional artists and regularly taught set dancing at the Willie Clancy Summer School.
His passing away in 1998 has left a huge void in Doonbeg. This weekend of music, song and dance is our tribute to him, with numerous events happening in the pubs and a concert in the local hall.
Sean Keane and Four Men and a Dog are just two of the top named acts who have headlined the festival in recent years. Come along and enjoy a weekend of music, song and dance celebrating Doonbeg’s best known exponent of traditional dancing.
