    5 stars - Spootiskerry Ceilidh Band are Highly Recommended booked Spootiskerry Ceilidh Band for their event

    “Rob and I wanted to get in touch to say thank you to you all for such a great Ceilidh at our evening reception. It was exactly as we wanted it to be and felt like a big party with all our family and friends. So many people have been in touch with us to say they had a great time and it was one of the best Ceilidh’s they had been to at a wedding. I was diagnosed with breast cancer a few weeks before the wedding and started chemotherapy just a few days after the wedding so it was really important to us that it was a happy day and we really felt like it was so thanks very much. Thanks again, Sue ”
