The soft lilt of western accents will be all to the fore when the Matt Keane Christmas concerts are staged in the Claregalway Hotel on Saturday and Sunday, 6-7 January.

This is the 10th anniversary of the shows and patrons are in for a real treat as the Keane family and friends turn on the charm and style for these homely nights down west. These are the shows that reconnect hearts and minds with the true and easy-going spirit of people in the province, especially those from a rural background who are rooted in the culture and ethos of the region.
