Fleadh Atha Cliath
The Fleadh Season opened very successfully with Fleadh Atha Cliath. The Fleadh was held in Malahide on Tuesday 7th May to Sunday 12th May 2013.
The Branches Groups and Bands played so well that they gained places in five of the six competitions they had entered for and were a credit to Craobh Naithí and their directors.
The group competitions took place on Saturday and Sunday was the turn of the Trios, Duets and Solo competitions and our members were a credit to our branch.
The Fleadh was hosted for the first time by Edenderry branch of CCÉ.
It took place from the 6th to the 14th of July.
We were not as fortunate with our groups and bands in Edenderry as in Malahide but our musicians gained valuable experience at performing at a provincial Fleadh
