Dan will be twenty this year!!!
The big event of 2017 in Lyreacrompane has to be the 20th Dan Paddy Andy Festival. Now would be a good time to plan to be at our four day festival on the August Bank Holiday Weekend, Friday to Monday August 4 to 7. We are proud of the fact that the festival has grown and established itself as a popular event in Kerry with an unbroken run for two decades.
On the occasion of our twentieth anniversary we are planning to make the festival bigger and better than ever with big names and a couple of new events. We will be announcing full details soon. The Dan Paddy Andy Festival has become a time for exiles to return to meet neighbours and old friends. This year’s festival will be a special one and we hope to see lots of exiles back to celebrate with us and all those who turn up from near and far for Lyreacrompane’s premier event.
If you are seeking accommodation near to the Festival the good news is that Glenduff Manor is now offering self catering accommodation. Find out more on their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/GlenduffManor/?fref=ts or https://www.airbnb.ie/rooms/16551789

Announcing Glenduff Manor
There is general delight in the Lyreacrompane area at the news that Glenduff House is to be extended as a hotel. The historic building was once in the hands of the Hurly Family who were the landlords of Lyreacrompane from 1857 to 1911. There has been a shortage of accommodation for visitors and exiles who visit this general area. The best of luck to Michael O’Malley and his team with their ambitious project which we are sure will be a great and convenient venue for locals and those visiting our place. The new venue will be called Glenduff Manor and will be officially opened on Saturday, January 21 at 12.30pm.
Guarding local resources
Guard What We Have: It is worth considering the important things we have in our community. These include our School, Post Office, Community Centre, Festival and the various small businesses. In the present economic situation it is vital that we continue to support the things that makes and keeps us a vibrant community. Let us appreciate the things we have and work individually and collectively to maintain, extend and improve them. There are a lot of things working against small rural communities like ours and we all need to think of the bigger picture so as to protect what we have. No one else is going to do that for us.
