News from the Houston Fenians: Blown away by the simply extraordinary performance from our team Houston Fenians at National Championships in Cleveland, Ohio. Two hard fought wins on Day 1... Onto the semi-finals tomorrow against St. Louis at 8am. Outstanding team performance! Fenians Abú!

From the Houston Fenians: Game 3: Houston lose to St Louis 0:7 to 6:9
Tired bodies took its toll, St. Louis were just a stronger side. Well done to them. 

So proud of the lads though, great display and everyone should hold their head high.

From the Houston School of Irish Music: With school starting back up, it's time to register for music programs for your kids! The Houston Irish Youth Band is a great program for kids ages 6-18. Ideal for homeschoolers and those in public/private school. Only 2 rehearsals a month. Come check us out!

Donate to help fund Kelly's fight!!!

Kelly Devlin is the wife of Patrick Devlin (infamous leader of the Blaggards). Kelly Leanne Kissinger Devlin is a Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister... She has two children with whom she loves to spend time with and would love to see them graduate and even marry and start families. This is the Fight for HER LIFE! Right now she is trying to fight IBC (Inflammatory Breast Cancer), the type that strikes young women and is very deadly! It is often not detected on mamograms. Please join in her fight and donate today!

Her ONLY insurance is COBRA (and that would not pay for the life saving medicine OR the pain relieving medicine she needed. 

If you can, go to 
this site & help Kelly out.  When this site started they needed $20,000.  She is less than half way there.  HELP her (& her family) out!

There is a fund raiser in the works (Soon as details are known, we will pass them on), but Kelly needs your support NOW!!

Mc Gonigel's Mucky Duck
2425 Norfolk Street
Houston, TX 77098-4113
(713) 528-5999

Clandestine is hard-driving, toe-tapping Texas Celtic sound. They re-formed in 2006 after a four-year break, with the same brand of blasting tune sets and new songs. Al Cofrin, the newest member, brings cittern and another set of bagpipes to the mix.

Percussionist and singer Emily Dugas captivates with her original song collaborations with Al, as well as her singular interpretations of songs in the Celtic genre.

Piper EJ Jones and fiddler Gregory McQueen return with the full force of their individual musical energies. EJ and Al also join Emily on vocals, with many songs now set in three-part harmony.

Once again, Clandestine is a regular feature at the Texas Scottish Festival and the North Texas Irish Festival, as well as their home pub, McGonigel's Mucky Duck in Houston.
