Clare County Breeze

Clare County Breeze

 

Since the time before norr, County Clare has been home to the world’s most renowned fiddlers. Every year, legends gather beneath Clare Fairy Trees, among sea-tortured stone, from the villages of Burren, Moher, Miltown Malbay, Ennistymom, Doolin and Kilfenora to test their tunes on fresh-hewed fiddles to be crowned the ruler of Clare Irish air. Before the ceremony, people tie ribbons around the branches of Fairy Trees in hopes that the after the music dies down at night, fairies will take the ribbons away, and with them the troubles of the people who left them there.
