The Daniel O’Connell Summer School takes place in the Library, Cahersiveen and in Derrynane House, Caherdaniel . The School highlights the legacy of Daniel O’Connell, nationally and internationally, explores issues of importance to O’Connell and which are still relevant today and celebrates the rich traditions and folklore of O’Connell’s native South Kerry.
