John McEvoy
Fiddle
John McEvoy has been described as “a supreme traditional musician” and one of Irelands finest traditional fiddle players, recognised for his
sensitive and rhythmical interpretations of the tradition. He has toured extensively in Europe and the USA and has collaborated and recorded
with many outstanding musicians including Sean Potts, Donal Lunny, Art McGlynn, Peter Browne, John Kelly, John Wynne and Catherine McEvoy to name
but a few.

Nollaig Ní Laoire
Sean Nós Singer
Nollaig Ni Laoire comes from a Co.Meath family that is steeped in traditional singing, music and dancing. She is an expert in Sean-nós singing
having won numerous All-Ireland Medals. She is one of only two people from Co.Meath to have won the prestigious Corn Uí Riada. This competition is the highest accolade in Sean-nós singing.

George Eogan Centre
Nobber
The George Eogan Cultural and Heritage Centre is located in the heart of Nobber village in north county Meath. The centre is housed in what was
formerly known as the “Old Church”, a Church of Ireland place of worship built in 1771 and deconsecrated in 1980. Adjacent to the centre is the
ancient St. John’s Cemetery, an early medieval ecclesiastical site dating from the first millennium.

Since 2004 the St. John's committee has successfully transformed both the neglected church and cemetery into a well-maintained and sensitively restored historic site.
