Additional Services and Great Fares for Fleadh Cheoil Na hÉireann

Fleadh Cheoil is a competition for amateur musicians and is taking place in Drogheda from 12th to 19th August. From the mythical times to the present day there have been festivals in Ireland judging and celebrating the skills and arts of entertainers. Few places in the western world have managed to maintain their musical traditions as successfully as Ireland has. The Fleadh is the showcasing of this tradition as well as a celebration of the individual skills of the competitors.
