The Derravaragh Music Association

2021 - 2022


Due to the on-going concerns about the spread of Covid,  ALL tickets must be booked in advance and all attendees MUST provide a Covid certificate and proof of identify at the door. 

Dear Friends,  

Welcome to the Derravaragh Music Association website. As you will be aware, the Covid 19 virus meant we had to cancel all our autumn 2020 and Spring 2021 concerts. 
We have engaged performers for Autumn 2021 and tickets are now available (see Performances).
Spring 2022: Due to Gavan Ring's performance schedule at English National Opera, DMA is re-scheduling the concert featuring Gavan and Fiachra Garvey from February 6th to February 18th (a Friday). The programme and ticket sales will commence on December 1st. Please check Performances



We are fortunate in that we have sufficient reserves to maintain the DMA for the coming months and of course are trying to keep any costs (IT, insurance, accounting fees, bank charges etc) as low as possible. However, as you most of you know, the DMA receives no public subsidy and we are wholly dependent on ticket sales and donations. Over the years, many of you have provided generous donations on an annual and ad hoc basis. Please if you can, continue to help us through your donations. We need to maintain a reserve and this year, will have to use it to pay for ongoing costs.

If you wish to continue to support us, please do so by bank transfer. Our bank details are as follows. Please use your name on the bank reference so we know who has provided the donation.

Memory Book

Book gifts for Christmas. Please please think to purchase the DMA Memory book (a snip at €10 plus €3 P&P per book) as a gift for family and friends. To avoid the cost of P&P, if you are attending the November 13th or December 12th concerts, please reserve your books but as we will continue to be 'cashless' we do ask you email your order to in advance and pay into the DMA account directly and you can collect your books at the concert.   


2022 Please note these dates into your diaries and will be send you details by email later in the year when booking opens for these concerts.
