There is a waiting list for this tour if you would like to be on it. Would you come if we had a bus going in 2019? Do let us know if you wish to be put on the ‘First to know’ list for the next tour of Ireland with Máirtín. Where in Ireland would like Máírtín to take you in 2019?
Things to be Thankful for…
2017 has been a great year and I can’t be thankful enough. A blessing of a second son, Finn, sharing the stage with The Chieftains, attaining American Citizenship, traveling around playing music renewing old friendships while making new ones, starting a Comhaltas Branch in San Diego and then finding the members here want to name it in honor of my Dad, Barry Cogan, getting to stay home alot with my other son Milo, living near the beach selling out a Bus Tour, having you as a reader and a fan of my music & storytelling. There is no end to the reasons that I might be thankful. How about you?
Lead benefits of Instagram
Well, I started on Instagram, you can follow me at @irishstoryteller
With the rapid rise in my Instagram followers a local Company here in San Diego MotifCables Contacted me and sponsored my headphone #cable. It nearly blew my head off with the quality sound. It can be a necklace too! They also fixed my Beats headphones which was supercool.
So, they have offered a discount to all my readers until the end of the year on www.motifcables.com use coupon code cork (all lower case) for 15% off entire order.
