Its Official! Cois Fharraige is back for 2011
After a years absent the surf and music festival Cois Fharraige returns to the shores of Ireland this year. It still remains a mystery though as to where the festival will be located. Will it be back in Kilkee or somewhere else in Clare or will it even be in Co.Clare at all??? we will let you know as soon as we do. Whatever the circumstances I’m sure it will be a blast! It will be taking place on the 9th, 10th and 11th of September. Its great to have two surf music events taking place in Clare this summer. With the Cold Pro less than four weeks away. An event that will kick off the summer season. Then we will have the return of Cois Fharraige at the end of Summer, which is sure to be the biggest party of the year and will be a brilliant way to end the summer.

News just in that the music festival ”Cois fharraige” will be held in Ardcavan in Co.Wexford. Music promotions company, MCD have applied to Wexford County Council for a licence to hold the event over three days from September 9th to September 11th. The Cois Fharraige surf and music Festival which has previously been held in Kilkee, Co. Clare. The festival attracted acts like The Coronas, Supergrass, The Saw Doctors, Repubic of Loose and the Blizzards in the past. The surf festival did not go ahead in Clare last year, and promoters MCD are now seeking to relocate it to Wexford.
According to one of the local organisers of the event, while the festival has not been ’100 per cent secured’ for Wexford, he is 90 per cent sure that it will go ahead’ this year.
Previous Cois Fharraige Festivals in Clare have attracted 8000 people to Kilkee and generated up to €6m for the local economy. Its a real loss for Clare that Cois Fharriage will not be happening in Co.Clare this year. After the Cold Pro being cancelled it doesn’t look like Clare will have any surf and music festival this year. Its a real shame.
