Leinster Comhaltas celebrate Leinter Fleadh weekend

Leinster Comhaltas invites all to join in the virtual celebration of Leinster Fleadh with Music, Song, Dance and Gaeilge on offer.

All roads this weekend should be leading to the Leinster Fleadh for a weekend of competition and comradery with friends. However, given the ongoing situation, we move online for a second year to mark the occasion. Leinster Comhaltas is delighted to be able to put together a great line up with Music, Song, Dance and Gaeilge on offer across the weekend. We have a great mix of events from sessions where we encourage people to join in and participate to Goitse in Concert on Saturday night for entertainment.

Starting off the weekend on Friday the 9th of July we are delighted to have a singing session led by Noelle Bowe from 8.30 with singers from across the country and further afield joining us in Leinster to celebrate and showcase their talents. Moving on to Saturday we are delighted to have the newly elected President of Comhaltas Éamonn Ó hArgáin join us as we discuss Plean Gaeilge CCÉ / Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann Irish Language Plan and to finish off Saturday on a high we have an online concert with Goitse open to all on our Facebook page. To round off the weekend, we have a Sean Nós Dancing workshop with Úna Ní Fhlatharta catering for all levels from beginners to advanced.

To join these events and for more info check out our Facebook pages (@Leinstercomhaltas and @LeinsterFleadh)

PRO Nicholas Dunphy remarked ‘We are delighted to be able to put on this weekend of online events to celebrate our annual weekend of competitions. Open to all and free for all to tune in we hope all those who join us will enjoy themselves.”
