Please be mindful when you are booking family holidays etc of the Fleadh Cheoil dates. If your child is participating in Grupa Cheoil or Céilí band it is important that they are available on these dates - and if they cannot - that the relevant teacher is informed as soon as possible. it is branch policy that those children who have participated in the previous competition move on to the next one (eg. Leinster moving onto All Ireland) if they are placed. The dates are as follows:
Dublin Fleadh : 12th 13th 14th May
Leinster Fleadh : 15th, 16th July
Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann : 18th, 19th, 20th August
