FLEADH CHEOIL ÁTHA CLIATH 2015

Fleadh Cheoil Átha Cliath was organized this year by Craobh Naithí branch of Comhaltas. It was a tremendous success and there was a huge amount of 'behind the scenes' voluntary work went into organizing and running the event. It was held in St. Pauls Secondary School in Walkinstown the weekend 8th / 9th of May. It was a great location and a great weekend was had by all. Craobh Naithí came home with an impressive haul of medals - 70 in total - including a very impressive first placing in all of their Ceilí Band entries - U12, U15 and U 18. This is a tremendous testament to the skill, commitment and hard work of students, parents and teachers alike. We are very grateful to the Fleadh Committee chaired by Seán Byrne for making Fleadh Átha Cliath 2015 the success that it was.
