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 concert tickets will be on sale in November. 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.

This year, we were delighted to publish our 'Memory Book'
It lists all the concerts and music played at DMA concerts since 1987. It includes the ‘memories’ of those involved in running the DMA as well as those from some regular audience members and performers. It is beautifully illustrated with some of the very many sketches and drawings made by the late Jeremy Williams who spent many happy hours at concerts at Tullynally.
The book costs €10 + €2.50 post. Please consider purchasing a few to give as gifts to other music lovers. If you wish to buy copies, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your order. If you are coming to a concert and want to collect copies when there, you can order in advance and they will be left ready for you to collect.
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.
· February 5th - Gavan Ring (Baritone) and Fiachra Garvey (piano)
· March 26th - ConTempo Quartet with Christopher Marwood (cello)
We no longer send out information about concerts in the post, as all communications are now through email.
Please send your email address to email@example.com if you wish to receive updates about our concerts.
