Never been as proud to be from #Mullingar as I have been the past week. @fleadhcheoil was simply amazing, the town a natural venue for it, and all went smoothly. Here’s Some Ones Sons (super band) on the Market Square yesterday. pic.twitter.com/1dOUF2Ooff— ronan casey (@mullingar_rc) August 8, 2022
