    Scenes from Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann

    A musical homecoming

    The Fleadh Cheoil first took place in Mullingar in County Westmeath in 1951, so it’s only fitting that after a two-year hiatus, the event returns to its roots in Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands.

    The competition is fierce with solo acts, duets, trios, groups, céilí bands, sean nós singing and dancing all in store. Some star acts include Martin Hayes, Sharon Shannon, The Bridge Céili Band, Daithí Gormley, Frankie Gavin and Catherine McHugh – to name a few.

    This is your chance to really immerse yourself in Ireland’s musical heritage. Get your toes tapping at a traditional céilí dance, soak up the atmosphere of a trad session in a cosy pub or take in the delights of a street parade. You can even practice your ‘cúpla focal’ (few words) at an Irish language workshop or stop by a lecture or two.
