Midlands 103 Overseas Audience Doubles Ahead Of Fleadh

The station will broadcast daily from Mullingar from July 31st to August 8th.

With Fleadh Ceoil na hÉireann less than two weeks away, the number of overseas listeners to Midlands103.com has more than doubled since July 1st.

The station will broadcast daily from Mullingar from July 31st to August 8th, launching with a four-hour special edition of Coppers and Brass with Paddy Duffy - a weekly Comhaltas fixture since 1990!

Other content will highlight the Summer Seisiúns, Scoil Éigse and the many competitions taking place.

Street performances can take place until midnight, as permitted under bye laws adopted unanimously by local councillors last month.

Midlands 103's online stream - opportunely sponsored by Mullingar Autos - is accessed in 85 countries each week, with the recent predominantly from the Irish community in Britain, mainland Europe and the United States.

Managing Director Will Faulkner is congratulating the Fleadh committee on assembling a terrific programme of events. 

"For a small but committed team of volunteers, they've shown tremendous resilience through COVID and watched as their hard work was dashed, time and again. The Fleadh is finally returning to its home in Mullingar and Midlands 103 is proud to act as the definitive exchange of information and entertainment during this great occasion."
