Renowned country and western group Crystal Swing are really looking forward to their big up-coming gig in Holycross when the cream of the Irish country and western scene will play the Cut Loose Festival.
To be staged in St Michael’s GAA grounds on Sunday July 22nd and featuring many of the top acts in the business, the festival is aimed at raising funds for the continued development of, and paying for, the fabulous facilities in the grounds which have been hugely enhanced by a dedicated committee and team of volunteers over the last five years or so.
Their work has ensured the provision of a state-of-the-art pavillion - named after the clubs most famous son, John Doyle - with dressingrooms, indoor handball alley, gymnasium, meeting rooms, kitchen, all-weather ball wall, walking track and a second pitch. St Michael’s GAA grounds is used every day by people from the parish and indeed outside also and has become a real focal point of recreational activity. Young and old alike come to play ball, walk, cycle, jog, take yoga classes, enjoy the fabulous Health Quest gym etc. And, the facilities are being enjoyed by all sections of the community and helping to make Holycross a very socialable place.
