2015 All Ireland Fleadh.

The All Ireland Fleadh 2015 week is being held once again in Sligo town Co. Sligo. A lot of people do not realise that the All Ireland Fleadh Cheoil festival consists of a week of music and not just the weekend. The first five days of the festival week is devoted to Scoil Éigse, at which all aspiring musicians, dancers and singers of any age can attend tutorial classes held in various venues around the town. In addition, a get together for all players of all instruments to practice or learn new tunes is held in a local venue (Monday to Thursday nights) (usually 8.30 to 10pm.) This get together is called Club na hÉigse. On Friday night, a concert is held featuring music , dance and song performed by a selection of the Scoil Éigse tutors. Note that enrollments are usually held on Sunday (this year the 9th August) in order to allocate students to the correct location and tutor. Full details on Scoil Éigse can be obtained by clicking on the link on the right of this page.

The All-Ireland Fleadh weekend will then commence on Friday evening 14th and continue until Sunday evening 17th of August. Many musicians will stay on until Monday evening and some people find it more enjoyable as the huge crowds will have gone. Looking forward to meeting old and new acquaintances there!

All-Ireland Fleadh 2003
The late John Cunningham (R.I.P.), Jim McKillop and the right elbow of Aidan Cunningham playing on the streets of Clonmel in August '03. Reminding us of the three weeks of scorching weather which we had before and including the weekend of Fleadh 2003. Many thanks to Alan & Mary Spencer for the photo on the left.
