Bid Launched To Bring Fleadh Cheoil Back To Tullamore

Written 2 years ago by Newsroom

Efforts are under way to bring the Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann back to Tullamore in two years’ time.

The biggest event in the Irish traditional music calendar ended a three year spell in the town in 2009 and was held in Ennis this year.

Ennis will also be the venue in 2017 but competition is expected to be fierce for those looking to attract potential crowds of hundreds of thousands in 2018.

Sinead Dooley of the Offaly Fleadh Cheoil Committee believes Tullamore has a great chance.
