FleadhFest

FleadhFest is an exciting initiative being undertaken by Comhaltas Units during 2021, in circumstances when normal Fleadh Cheoil activity is not possible. FleadhFest is the story of Comhaltas told from the point of view of each County and Province – the story of the people, community and culture which sustains our traditions of music, song, dance, storytelling and language, ensuring it is a living tradition which can be passed on to future generations.

Watch the online video for the Leicester Branch story (the Leicester contribution starts at 17m 15s, after the Coventry Branch).

Midland Online Comhaltas Competition results

This year’s regional Fleadh competition could not take place owing to the pandemic. There was instead an online competition for solo competitors, and duets and trios that live in a single household. Entries were by video recordings and a broadcast of the results of the competitions and the winners can be viewed on the Midland Region CCÉ Facebook page.

Children wanted!

Do you have children or grandchildren? Or know anyone who has? We could make you really proud of them
in no time at all. Just bring them along on a Monday evening for a free taster lesson and it could be the
start of a truly wonderful experience for children and grown-ups alike. No previous experience necessary.
