Korit Irish Festival
« on: April 30, 2018, 09:04:22 AM »
I have visited Korit in Victoria, Australia and it is a great little town and while the townsfolk speak with an Aussie accent they all have Irish names.

The Irish Festival is a very popular event,

Thanks for the videos - nicely done.

I'm a fan of Irish music but Danny Boy does nothing for me.

That would be Koroit, in western Victoria.   A Lovely little spot. It is near Killarney and Port Fairy, formerly known as Belfast.

One of my favourite parts of Victoria - I'm overdue another visit.   O0
