Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann Mullingar 2020


Event Details

It was back in 1951 when Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann was founded on Mount Street in Mullingar, and over the years has become the largest group involved in the preservation and promotion of Irish traditional music. The non-profit cultural movement has hundreds of local branches around the world, working for the cause of Irish music since its beginnings in Mullingar. Every year it runs the most recognised competitions for Irish music, the “Fleadh Cheoil” (literally “feast of music”). Musicians compete in a series of qualifying rounds, culminating in the annual All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann. Many of the most memorable Fleadh’s happened in Mullingar and after a long absence the Fleadh comes home to Mullingar in 2020.
