Murphy Roche Annual General Meeting 2012 followed by a session.
In our club's historic and most memorable event to date, over 100 members attended the 2012 All Ireland Fleadh and won gold!

  Murphy Roche Irish Music school and club rang in 2011 with a session at Irish Legends. At 6pm, midnight Irish time, we celebrated the (Irish) new year as the bells of Christ Church, Dublin rang,

The 2009 Fox Valley Folk festival was another stunning success with beautiful weather. As always a great time was had by all at our two performances and the picnic and session that followed.
The sun was shining on a bright and warm glorious fall day for the 2008 Fox Valley folk festival.  This was only fitting as the 2007 festival was cancelled because Island Park in Geneva where it is held was under water.

2006 was out third time to play at the Fox Valley folk festival. We performed on one of the stages and then held a session afterwards.  A great time was had by all.
