“The Fleadh” is the most important event in the traditional music calendar.
For many, it is the culmination of months of hard work and practice as they compete against fellow musicians, singers and dancers to achieve the recognition of being an All-Ireland champion. For others it is a unique and welcoming festival of the best of traditional arts that offers a wide range of activities to be enjoyed by all.
Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann 2016 in Ennis was an outstanding success, drawing almost 400,000 visitors to the town. Now Ennis and Co. Clare are preparing to host Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann once again, we will work hard to ensure that The Fleadh Down In Ennis 2017 is not just the best Fleadh yet, but maybe the best Fleadh ever!
