Scoil Acla

Scoil Acla is an annual summer school on Achill Island that has been promoting traditional Irish music, arts and culture for the past 22 years. At the heart of Scoil Acla is tuition - for all ages and abilities - in a range of traditional musical instruments, including the harp, uileann pipes, fiddle, concert flute, bango, concertina, tin whistle and accordion. Scoil Acla hosts a highly respected writers workshop, along with regular concerts, poetry readings, drama performances and art exhibitions. Classes are offered in Gaeilg’ Acla (Achill Irish language) and courses in the visual arts are also provided.

Scoil Acla is committed to providing expert tuition in traditional music at a very reasonable price. An enjoyable and rewarding holiday activity for children, Scoil Acla also attracts participants from across the globe including regular pupils from the USA and Japan. The 2009 Scoil Acla runs from July 27th to August 2nd.
