The Inn at Milltown recently hosted the fireside Hearth Session with thanks to Bord na Móna.

Little Hours, Stephanie Rainey and Ye Vagabonds receive a warm welcome from locals on Tuesday December 19.

Now in its second year, the Hearth Sessions featured a stellar line up of Irish talent playing 30-minute acoustic sets each against the backdrop of a roaring Bord na Móna fire in front of a packed local crowd of eager music fans.

The Inn at Milltown was announced as one of the regional winners to host a Bord na Móna Hearth Session thanks to an overwhelming public vote.

Supported by the Vintners Federation of Ireland, pubs across the country were invited to participate, heroing their own hearth, to host one of three, hotly anticipated Hearth Sessions.

Votes were cast on the Bord na Móna Fuels Facebook page, with members of the public commenting below the pub’s image telling why they thought it would be the perfect place for an intimate fireside gig.

After the launch in Whelan’s in Dublin recently, all the votes were counted, and Bord Na Móna fuels brought the Hearth Sessions to pubs in Wicklow, Kildare and Offaly over the course of early December.
