As a part of Galway 2020’s Small Towns Big Ideas programme, a night of choral and traditional music, poetry and heritage took place in Milltown on Friday 1 February 2019 to celebrate its strong Bardic tradition.

This event was the first in a series of cultural evenings held in Milltown as part of the Ceall Cluaine Culture project and included performances by Aoífe Blake on harp and local banjo and string player, D Flanagan, who performed with his band, The Tribesmen. Poet and musician, Pete Mullineaux, who gave a number of workshops in primary schools, performed his own poetry, while Galway City-based Cois Cladaigh performed several pieces of poetry. The Young Bards of Bellmount and Milltown also performed their piece Ode to Spring, which they created in workshops with Pete Mullineaux.
